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: February 24 – March 1, 2019
Where: Serra Retreat Center, Malibu, CA
Facilitator: The Rev. Dr. Judy Yates Kiker
Description: Today we seldom have to live more than a few moments with unanswered questions. We all simply “Google it.” In this fast-paced, technologically advanced world of ours, we have lost the ability to live in the questions. But as the poet Rilke once wrote, it is important sometimes to “try to love the questions” and to “live the questions now.”
What are your questions? How can you find God in the questions of your hearts? What are God’s questions? What can they teach us about ourselves?
Join us on retreat as we work together to live in, wrestle with, and raise questions. Join us as together we seek “God in the questions.
Format: Each day includes lecture and dialogue with Dr. Judy Siker; 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.
