Teresa of Avila,  Spanish mystic and Founder of multiple monasteries, traveled into the deep interior of her mystic soul, with much of that journey demanding perseverance in finding her own feminine self-worth in a world fully grounded in patriarchy. In the face of much adversity she found the freedom of a non-dual mystical life, her own natural feminine power, and a keen discernment of the human soul.

In this retreat we will journey with Teresa’s poetry and writings into our mystical self, releasing the false concepts of who we think we are, and also those that have been placed upon us by society. We will explore new meanings of the word “power,” especially in relationship to the feminine heart, using the Hebrew and Greek words which translate power as Strength/Energy and Capacity respectively. We will, like Teresa, seek to find where our contemplative life informs our actions in the world, bringing forth the power of the feminine that is sorely needed in our patriarchally decaying world.

Come and dive deeply into the inner teachings of this great mystic, and how they may enrich your inner and outer mystical life!
