Mere Spirituality: The Spiritual Life According to Henri Nouwen
Friday, November 24 - Sunday, November 26, 2017
Retreat Description: As a prolific writer, Nouwen addressed a slew of wide-ranging topics, but only insofar as they bore directly upon his main thrust-our life in the Spirit. Never did he stray from this sole emphasis! To the most basic question, "what constitutes the very essence of our spiritual life," Nouwen's conceptual trilogy (Solitude, Community, Ministry) provides the most solid answer as it represents a balanced conception of what authentic spirituality is about. It is spirituality pure and simple, without the unwanted trappings: mere spirituality indeed! This retreat focuses on Nouwen's own articulation of the substance of our spiritual life.
Presenter: Wil is an oblate of Valyermo. He is a counselor, spiritual director, and retreat leader who regularly teaches courses on Nouwen in various Catholic and Protestant institutions both across the U.S and abroad. Wil is the author of a triology on Nouwen and the recently released title called Mere Spirituality: The Spiritual Life According to Henri Nouwen. (www.nouwenlegacy.com)
