Receiving Spiritual Resilience

A discipline of receiving: daily using mantra prayers from the ancient Psalms, hearing scripture, and engaging in an "examen" at the end of the day. This daily rhythm is coupled with an invitation to join a "journeying group" as well as sit individually with a spiritual director.

Before beginning, please take the Pre-Survey.
