An Online Session: Journey in the Desert: A Spiritual Treasure Map



SandDunesKelsoDunesMohavePreserve2012MikeBairdWikiPresented by: Fr. Brad Karelius

Join others online as we explore treasures of the desert experienced by Jesus and the monastics- solitude, silence, and surrender, using the American Southwest and the travelogue of Fr. Brad Karelius, author of Desert Spirit Places: The Sacred Southwest, as a backdrop. Fr. Karelius will present his own desert encounters after his life fell apart in the catastrophic health crises of his son Erik. We will discover resources for our own journey within desert wisdom and Ignatian spirituality, with significant time for personal contemplation and group discussion. This online workshop was part of the men’s series and due to great popularity is now offered to the wider community.

Note: Registrants will be provided a Zoom link on July 24, 2020 via email, to join the workshop the following day.
