Come away for a special retreat weekend filled with intimate space and time to explore the Seven Mansions of Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle. Teresa is one of Christianity's great mystics and teachers (1515 1582). The Interiors Castle was her final work and one of the greatest literary works on experiential mysticism and contemplation in Christianity. Together we will explore the contemporary contemplative journey in light of Teresa's timeless insights into the human soul and its journey towards God.
