The Mystical Marriage

 

Your Soul is the most powerful catalyst. It can transform every trauma, every miserable experience, ever injustice into phenomenal joys and gifts. All you have to do is to practice neither clinging to, nor resisting the pain. Mindfulness and mental discipline can help you practice non-attachment but only falling in love with our own Soul can fully set you free. This retreat will teach you about how to enter into mystical marriage between the lover (your soul) and the Beloved (God). It will nourish the mystical impulse in your soul and inspire new depths of divine-self love. You will be encouraged and uplifted by the words and energy of four Christian Mystical Master Teachers and offered practical tools to apply that inspiration to your spiritual growth and development.

This retreat is suitable for everyone who feels a longing for closeness to God. If you are a long-time practitioner of mysticism or a new explorer into the contemplative mystical life, you will find deep spiritual nourishment in these teachings.

What Is An Online Retreat?

An online retreat is a real-time live event that takes place over several days. It is designed to give you the fully immersive experience of a spiritual retreat from the comfort of your own home. It is designed to be attended in full, so each session will build on the previous sessions and lead you through a transformational process. 

 We’ve been running these online retreats for 5 years and we hear the same feedback each time. People consistently tell us that they were amazed and how deep and how engaging the retreat was. They say that they had no idea that an online retreat could be as powerful and transformative as attending a retreat in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I attend some of the sessions and not others of the retreat?

This retreat is designed to be an immersive experience. The sessions and discussion will build on one another so we do not recommend coming to some sessions and not others. But, if you have to miss one session you can definitely still attend. 

Can I attend only by phone rather than video call?

It is possible but not recommended. There will be PowerPoint presentations for many of the talks which she will mess if you’re joining by phone. And it’s generally much easier to connect with the other attendees if you can see them. That being said, if there is one portion of a session that you cannot be sitting in front of a computer for it’s possible to move over to audio only for that portion. It’s also easy to turn off your camera if you don’t wish to be seen during portions of the retreat. 

Who will be leading the small groups?

Our ministers from across the country will be leading a small groups. They are a fantastic group of people who are highly trained in our practices. 

Is there a payment plan option?

Yes, there is a payment plan option that includes two payments. Both payments need to be completed before retreat begins.
