Missouri School Of Religion Plans Retreat On Spiritual Formation

Missouri School of Religion is once again bringing back its annual Spiritual Formation Retreat. The gathering called "Sacred Intentions," will take place Dec. 8 through Dec. 9. The retreat will address the questions "What do you want for your life?" and "What will you do to achieve it?" Presentations and discussions will refer to the book "Entering the Castle" by Carolyn Myss.

In Entering the Castle, Myss uses St. Teresa of Ávila’s metaphor of the "interior castle" as a template, and challenges readers to get in touch with their own souls in showing how they can then lead deeper, more joyous lives. Professional counselor Mary Tobias Hagan will be the presenter. The cost is $135 and includes lodging and meals over the two days. Read more information. [PDF]
