5th Annual International Retreat with Rev. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Today, thanks to better health practices and contemporary medicine most of us can delay much longer both the debilitations of aging and the onset of death, but that leaves us with the question: How should we live out these latter years? Is there a second generativity beyond that of our young and middle years? We are in dire need of spirituality for both our latter years and for how we should ideally face our own death. Drawing upon literature, psychology, the arts, scripture, theology, and spirituality, this retreat will try to begin some formulations towards A Spirituality for our Wisdom Years.
