2016 Summer Spirituality Days
Immaculata University is pleased to announce the 2016 Summer Spirituality Days: The Mystical Life, Culmination of a Spiritual Life with presenter Paul Coutinho will be held Wednesday, June 22 through Friday, June 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. In addition, a one-day retreat with Coutinho, entitled Exploring Spiritual Dyslexia, is offered on Tuesday, June 21, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The retreat will celebrate the rainbow of God’s unconditional love with the Prodigal Son, St. Paul and St. Ignatius. The three-day course will be a mystical journey through Eastern spirituality that begins with loving kindness, flows into compassion grows into sympathetic joy and culminates in equanimity. This is the path of growing inner freedom, and as mystics we find our personal identity in our realization of the Divine Essence.
As an internationally recognized Ignatian scholar, author, and speaker, Paul Coutinho brings an Eastern flavor to Western spirituality. A native of India, he frequently leads retreats, gives spiritual direction, and is active in leading people to an awareness of cultivating peace in their lives and in our world. He is the author of How Big is Your God?, Just as You Are, Sacred Darkness, and An Ignatian Pathway: Experiencing the Mystical Dimension of the Spiritual Exercises.
The mission of the Summer Spirituality Days is to provide an opportunity for participants to pause, be enriched, reflect, and share with others the movements of God in their lives. Courses emphasize the integration of spirituality and psychology as one presents one´s whole self before God in genuine relationship. Those who seek God, minister to others, or work in counseling or psychology are invited to participate.
Cost for the one-day retreat is $45 and the cost for the three-day course with Paul Coutinho is $75. Course registration forms and information on housing and meals are available at www.immaculata.edu/spirituality.
