STILL FULL OF SAP, STILL GREEN: A Spirituality of Aging

Monday, October 17 - Thursday, October 20, 2022

This retreat will be inspired by research and by many writers' reflections on spirituality for the second half of life. Creative living within the season of wisdom, greater and ongoing maturation, and positive transformation of the inner life will be some of the meditations for a full life in the Spirit. Experiencing limitations during one's aging process will be explored as opportunities for transcendence and spiritual fecundity that could not be profoundly realized in earlier seasons of growth.  

Fr. Francis Benedict has been a monk of Valyermo since 1967. He earned an MA in Philosophy from Loyola-Marymount University and an MS in Theology from Mt. Angel in Oregon. He was ordained a priest in 1976. He served as the Abbey's Abbot for 16 years. His special areas of ministry include spiritual direction, preaching retreats, and working with 12-step recovery groups. In addition to many responsibilities at the Abbey, he now serves as the Director of Oblates. 

Dr. Yvonne Comstock Wilber, Obl.OSB;PH.D is an oblate of Valyermo and works as an academic librarian and adjunct instructor of Religion at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. She holds master's degrees in Library Science and Intellectual Leadership, and she earned her Ph.D. in Humanities with a major in Philosophy. Yvonne's intellectual work lies at the intersection of the humanities, technology, and ecology, which supports her "heart work" in helping people build bridges across all sorts of differences.
