9th Annual Pilgrimage Retreat in Assisi, Italy ~ Advent Wisdom Journeying: Exploring Creative Symbols & Cycles of the Season

9th Annual Pilgrimage Retreat in Assisi, Italy ~ Advent Wisdom Journeying: Exploring Creative Symbols & Cycles of the Season

Friday, November 30, 2018
through December 6, 2018
Location: Hotel Giotto, Assisi, Italy
Cost: see program flyer (link below)

Advent: a season of dark and light, of mountains and valleys, of waiting and of fulfillment. A time of gazing at the night sky, in search of a star bright enough to follow.

Begin your Advent prayer in the hills and valleys of the Umbrian countryside, probing the archetypes and the parables of the
season through silent contemplative wandering, shared input,
art and written journaling, community and solitude.

Our pilgrimage time will be spacious. The daily schedule begins with personal quiet, a generous buffet breakfast, morning prayer and a communal gathering with themed presentations. The afternoons provide open time with opportunities and meditative time for contemplative gazing, visiting sacred sites, wandering. Lunch on your own. Personal journaling and meditative art journaling with art materials and /or photography will be encouraged. Our retreat group gathers for a late afternoon sharing of graces and silence, Next we enjoy a typical Umbrian dinner, usually at the Hotel. At the suggestions of past pilgrims, two nights are set aside to explore the dinner meal at a local restaurant of your choice. We will end the day with an optional night prayer in the gathering room.

We are hosted at Hotel Giotto, Via Fontebella, Assisi PG located near the Basilica of San Francesco. The hotel provides a dedicated room for our retreat gatherings, all breakfasts, most dinners, and stunning views of the Umbrian valley.
