Companion’s Mission Statement: Companions on the Inner Way offers a safe communal place to explore our deep longings for the Holy. Grounded in the Christian tradition, our contemplative retreats incorporate body, mind, and soul through presentations, dialogue, spiritual practices, art, music, movement, and worship with Eucharist. We strive to create an environment that is theologically curious, radically welcoming, and liturgically vibrant.
August 2018 — Retreat Information
When: August 5-10, 2018
Where: Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center, Lake Tahoe, NV
Special Guest: Lisa Fullam
Description: God calls everybody into closer relationship with God; God calls everybody to work for social justice. In this retreat, we’ll explore the interconnection of work for social justice with some of the great Christian mystics, in the contexts of four great liberatory movements: environmental justice, feminism, racial justice, and LGBTQ justice. In each, we’ll explore the insight of a Christian mystic, and then consider the contemporary challenge. The aim is personal: how are WE called into the transformation of the world and into the mysticism that sustains it?
Format: Each day includes lecture and dialogue with Dr. Lisa Fullam; small group community around spiritual reading; corporate and individual times of silence and contemplation; worship with Eucharist; and communing with God through movement, art, and nature.
