An experience in contemplative living with Tessa Bielecki and Father David Denny.  Explore the sacred in the ordinary, the role of poetry, and the diverse weather you encounter throughout the mystical seasons of your life.

You will emerge from this experience with:
  • Reflections about the seasons of spiritual growth from saints, mystics, and poets
  • Practical suggestions on living each day contemplatively – living a natural, balanced, and whole life
  • Ways to inspire your contemplative life with poetry and literature


Tessa Bielecki and Fr. David Denny have worked together for over forty years. They began as Carmelite monks in the Spiritual Life Institute where they co-edited Desert Call and gave retreats and workshops. At Colorado College they taught a history of Christian Mysticism and Desert Spirituality: from the Middle East to the American Southwest. They left monastic life in 2005 and created the Desert Foundation and now live in neighboring hermitages near Crestone, Colorado.
