Living the Divine Heart
A Contemplative Retreat


“We are put on this earth for a very short time in order to learn to love,”

– James Finley, Ph.D., spiritual teacher, and writer

Our hearts are a portal for God’s heart, and where our hearts and God’s heart meet, Divine Love is fulfilled. Together, we’ll explore the nature of Divine Love as a living relationship. This will be a time of prayer and art making, silence and sacred conversation, self-care and connection to community. Sessions will include reflections and teachings from Colette’s book, The Divine Heart, as well as Christian mystics, sacred poetry and scripture. We will engage in contemplative practices such as lectio divina, visio divina, walking meditation in nature, and spiritual journal writing. Come and step into sacred space in the joy of community and find grace, strength, and renewed vitality to continue on life’s journey.

 

Presenters:

Colette Lafia is an award-winning author, spiritual director, and retreat leader. She has a passion for the contemplative path, and invites us to see ourselves as manifestations of Divine Love. Her most recent book is The Divine Heart: Seven Ways to Live in God’s Love, which received a 2022 Nautilus Book Award. To learn more about Colette, please visit www.colettelafia.com.

Mary Loebig Giles (she/her) is Pastor of Action and Contemplation at Common Table SF, leads a Faith & Justice cohort, and offers spiritual direction outdoors in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. She facilitates retreats that awaken the heart through embodied and contemplative practices. Learn more here.

Mary and Colette first met on a retreat at the Mercy Center and became friends as students in the Living School at the Center for Action and Contemplation. Their retreats are joyful, embodied, and contemplative encounters that deepen intimacy with self and God.
