Mary Magdalene and the Garden of Mystics: A Forty Days with Journey Towards Easter, Healing and Wholeness
February 22- April 2, 2023
You will receive five email posts each week. On three Saturdays, there will be zoom sessions on The Garden of Virtues from10:30 am - Noon PST: a chance to see how Mary Magdalene's legacy has influenced later generations of mystics including John Cassian. On Sunday evenings ( 5-6 pm PST- also recorded to watch later if you cannot join us), you are invited to join Compline, a one hour contemplative service of music and meditation where we will learn a chant of Hildegard of Bingen, sing Taize and other chants together, explore lectio divina through short passages from the writings of John Cassian, the Gospel of Mary and the Gospel of Thomas and end with one of the great Gregorian chants for Lent, Ave Regina Caelorum.
