"Reflecting on Our Experiences

as a Path to Peace"


Saturday, October 29, 2022

9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

via Zoom

If we want to grow in inner peace, we can learn to notice our emotions, feel them, and reflect on where they are taking us. Even strong emotions are gifts that naturally arise from our human experience.  In this workshop we will explore how to work with what moves within us in spiritually healthy ways. In this retreat we will apply wisdom from St. Benedict and St. Ignatius, with time for personal reflection.

Facilitator: Becky Van Ness, recently retired, started the certificate program in spiritual direction at Saint John’s University and taught there for a number of years.  She continues to do spiritual direction and offer workshops and retreats at the Spirituality Center of Saint Benedict’s Monastery in St. Joseph, Minnesota, where she is an oblate.
