Walking the Labyrinth of the Soul- St. Teresa's Inner Castle
Wednesday, November 4, 2020 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
We often pause approaching a labyrinth. It’s as if the soul ‘knows’ what’s coming in that very moment of ‘not knowing.’ Yet, love compels us and so we step. Ah, but this is no ordinary love for, as we move ever closer to our interior center where the diamond shines brightest, we discover that this love requires the ultimate sacrifice: the gift of our self so we may experience our birth in Christ. But we don’t know yet, as the little butterfly in the last mansion, the ecstasy that comes from the death of all that has stood in the way of us walking with our God. We don’t know so we step reverently holding fast to St. Teresa’s assurance, “Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you. All passes away except God and God alone is sufficient.”
Join us and walk the inner labyrinth as it weaves through the seven mansions in St. Teresa’s interior castle, progressively revealing the many facets of the inner diamond. Explore with interactive reflection, Christian mantra practice, circle dance, and experiential exercises. Come and catch a glimpse of the butterfly within. It just may compel you to wonder at the joy—the joy St. Teresa says will make the soul forget itself, forget everything, except that which proceeds from this joy—namely the praises of God.
