What do an ancient and modern mystic have to teach us in the time of pandemic? How can suffering open the gateway to radical self acceptance and love?

Join us for a morning of reflection, journaling, and contemplative practice as we listen to God’s voice of Love in the writings of Trappist monk, Thomas Merton, and medieval anchorite, Julian of Norwich – our trustworthy guides to solitude and self-compassion.
