The Mystical Seasons of Our Lives: Wonder, Shattering, Glory

  • October 09, 2015
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Creative Life Center at St. Ambrose Episcopal Church, 7520 South Boulder Road, Boulder, CO


Travel with Tessa Bielecki through the seasons that unfold in life: Wonder, Bravado, Disillusionment, Shattering and Glory.  16th-century Spanish Christian mystic, Teresa of Avila, will join you as a prime example of these five seasons.  Tessa’s accessible, contemporary and universal language appeals to a wide variety of people from all walks of life and different spiritual orientations.

You will emerge from the evening with new light on your sometimes bewildering journey through life, and with inspiration, encouragement, and classical wisdom from a tried and true “spirituality for the long haul,” especially for painful seasons of suffering.

A reception with Tessa Bielecki and Father David Denny follows.


Tessa Bielecki's unique perspective from her background in international relations, monastic life, and peace and reconciliation among Jews, Christians, and Muslims brings richness to her sharing of contemplative life.  Tessa now lives as a hermit in the wilderness outside Crestone, Colorado, “chopping wood, carrying water,” and immersing herself in the full four seasons of the year: summer, fall, winter, and spring. She loves not only her silence and solitude, but colors and flowers, big earrings, good food and drink, cooking and celebrating with friends, and serving wherever she is needed, especially leading retreats and workshops, singing at the bedsides of the sick and dying, and cutting juniper boughs for open-air cremations.
