Summer Spirituality Days
Immaculata University is pleased to announce that the 2017 Summer Spirituality Days: Spiritual Psychology with presenter Paul Coutinho, will be held Wednesday, June 21 through Friday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. In addition, a one-day retreat with Coutinho, entitled Silence in the Soul Echoes the Symphony of the Universe, is offered on Tuesday, June 20, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The retreat will be a day of reflection that will trace a path to the cave at the depth of our being and the source of our Divine essence. Through simple steps we can unleash the “spring of water gushing up to eternal life” just as Jesus had promised.
The three-day course will explore the interface of religion, spirituality and psychology as exemplified in the practice of psychology where many of the issues that come to the psychotherapist are existential questions such as the meaning of life, work and personal relationships.
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 $50 and the cost for the three-day course with Paul Coutinho is $75.
