My Beloved spoke and said to me "Rise up my love, my fair one and come away". Song of Songs 2:10
All retreats at Ecclesia of Burning Ones takes place in milieu of a monastic style where we encourage a peaceful, quiet environment for intentional, focused contemplation upon Jesus - upon the union of love or the gaze of faith; of turning a loving, simple and permanent attentiveness of the mind and the heart to divine things.
If desired, we offer a short training/teaching on the prayer of silence or contemplative prayer.
"I lost much time in the beginning of my Christian experience because I tried to find the Lord outwardly rather than turning inwardly". ~ St. Augustine
"You rest in the continuous inward act of abiding. It is a sweet sinking into deity". ~ Madame Guyon
