Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation

Dear Friends in Christ,

Living in a sacred place where you can explore the rhythm and love that community can bring to the heart of the sojourner is upon us now in the Five-Day Academy for Spiritual Formation, March 10-15, 2019, at the Life Enrichment Center, Fruitland Park, FL.

Spiritual formation is at the heart of the discipleship.  Come be among those seeking a deeper walk with Christ; experience living in a sacred community of trust, openness and confidentiality; listen to wise teachers exploring spiritual disciplines; and taste the joy of participating in daily Eucharistic celebration with friends!  The week follows a monastic rhythm of worship, listening, discerning, sharing and resting.  Covenant groups in the evening are a place to explore with a small group the mystery and challenges of the day living out the Gospel in varied ways.

Our guest faculty will be Ray Buckley and Rev. Kathryn Damiano.

Ray Buckley is a lecturer on Native American studies at several universities as well as a teacher, and storyteller.  Along with Buffy St. Marie and Albert White Hat, Mr. Buckley was a featured presenter at the Threshold Arts Series in Iowa.  Mr. Buckley‘s sculptures and art are in the permanent collections of museums in several countries. Ray makes his home in Palmer, Alaska, and is a traditional basket-maker and wood carver.  You can only imagine what our sessions will be like with this gifted man!

Kathryn Damiano is a Quaker and lifelong contemplative.  As a teacher of in-depth spiritual life studies and retreat leader, she sees her ministry as working for peace and justice through spiritual formation.  Kathryn has been a spiritual director for 35 years and has served in this capacity at Pendle Hill, a Quaker center for study and contemplation.  Kathryn moved from Philadelphia to Wichita, Kansas, 17 years ago to join the Friends of Jesus Community.  Their ministry was living in a low-income area of the city to be a presence to promote interracial reconciliation.  What a gift it will be to learn more about opening the eyes of our heart so that we may see with the eyes of Christ.

As you see we have a diverse and interesting pair of presenters.  Many who come to the Academy go home refreshed and renewed in their spirit and calling.  ALL are welcome.  Come, see and join this exciting ministry opportunity!  You will be changed.
