Wendell Berry and Thomas Merton: Wisdom for Today

Trappist monk Thomas Merton (1915-1968) and farmer-poet Wendell Berry (b. 1934) are two of the most important ecological prophets in recent decades.

This contemplative retreat will delve into their lives and writings, exploring what their wisdom means for our lives in this precarious age. Drawing on the facilitator’s decade of living in community on the land, the retreat will include presentation, discussion, silence, and (weather permitting) time outdoors.

Friday, February 12, to Saturday, February 13, 2021
The retreat begins on Friday at 6:30pm and concludes on Saturday at 3:30pm.
Cost of $195 Includes $55 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, and meals.
