Thursdays, beginning September 15th | 10:30 am. EDT

Many people would like to make the Spiritual Exercises but are not able to commit for a 30-day or 30-week retreat. Others have made the Spiritual Exercises in the past and would like to reconnect with their experience. Some are just curious. If you fall into any of these categories, the Manresa Experience may be for you. This 12-week retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises brings you through the essential parts of the experience in a shorter format.
A group is forming now and we will begin on September 15th. Eachparticipant will commit to praying 20-30 minutes a day with thematerials and meet each week for small group guidance. We willmeet on Thursdays at 10:30 am for our small group gathering.

Back by popular demand! This introduction to mindfulness training is based on skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT mindfulness skills are specifically designed to be nondenominational and compatible with a wide variety of traditions and beliefs. This class will be especially helpful for people who are struggling with their own spiritual practice, emotional dysregulation, or want to learn more about mindfulness for better health and well-being.
The training will take place on Thursdays at 1-2:30pm at the Spiritual Renewal Center. Space is limited to 8 participants. No one will be turned away for inability to pay. This class is not a substitute for psychotherapy but may compliment your current practice.
Steve Moore is the director of the Spiritual Renewal Center, spiritual director and clinical psychologist. He was intensively trained in DBT and has conducted DBT groups in a variety of settings. If you are interested, please contact Steve Moore at the Spiritual Renewal Center. We are not able to accommodate walk-ins.
