Mysticism is the best kept secret within our spiritual and ecclesial circles. But, alongside Scripture, it is a very rich source of insight and revelation from which to draw guidance for our journey. This retreat will draw on the lives and insights of a number of classical and contemporary mystics, Therese of Lisieux, Julian of Norwich, John of the Cross, Ruth Burrows, and Henri Nouwen, to see what these men and women, famous for touching the souls of so many people, have to offer us. How might we live a mystically-driven life?
