We at Companions for the Silent Journey are looking forward to the return of Dr. James Finley for our Spring 2011 retreat, "Following the Mystics Through the Narrow Gate." This retreat will be held at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Colorado Springs March 11-13, 2011.

The retreat will address the following topics:

- What Jesus meant when he said "Enter by the narrow gate" (Matt. 7:13-14)

- Recognizing and passing through obstacles on the way to and through the gate

- Methods of prayer and meditation that go with phases of spiritual awakening

- The paradox of encountering a gate that only God can pass through

- How the mystics prepare us for the love we find in passing through the gate

- Seeing ourselves, others, and the earth as the generosity of God

- Echoes of the narrow gate from the non-Christian mystical traditions

- The humbling and liberation that comes with following the path of the mystics


The retreat will allow times for meditation, personal reflection and discussion.
