Flame-dancing Spirit, come,
sweep us off our feet and dance us through our days.
Surprise us with your rhythms, dare us to try new steps,
explore new patterns, new partnerships.
Release us from old routines,
to swing with abandoned joy and fearful adventure.
And in the intervals, rest us in your still centre. ~ Ann Lewin
The theme for our weekend is exploration – an invitation to become more open and aware of the Creator’s loving presence in the world around us and within us.
What better season than Springtime – a time of new life, of exuberant growth and transformative opportunities – as we are embraced and held in the warm, wonderful
and peace-filled space of the monastery.
I invite you to come alive to what resonates in your heart as you engage with the beautiful garden that is New Norcia in and through the wisdom of our Christian contemplative tradition.
God’s Word is in all creation, visible and invisible.
The Word is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity.
The Word manifests every creature.
Now this is how the spirit is in the flesh – the Word is indivisible from God.
~ Hildegard of Bingen
