Rediscovering Beauty: Poems to Inspire Prayer & Contemplation During Lent

This retreat, first given in person in 2017 at Nativity of Our Lady in San Luis Obispo CA and Resurrection Church in Aptos CA, offers three reflections on the poetry in The Book of Psalms alongside beloved mystic and contemporary poems from the likes of St Teresa of Avila, Rumi and Hafiz, Mary Oliver and more.  Use these resources to carve out sacred time for yourself during Lent as we rediscover how the beauty of language can nourish us in times of uncertainty, drawing us closer to God and one another.

Session I: Songs of Lament 

Session II: Songs of Thanksgiving

Session III: Songs of Praise (updating soon)
