Description

INCREASE OUR COMPASSION
Life from the heart of Julian of Norwich’s Revelations of Divine Love

Retreat led by Revd. Robert Fruehwirth

Considered by Thomas Merton to be one of the most significant theologians ever in the English tradition, and one of the most valuable mystics in the Christian tradition, Julian of Norwich (c.1342-c1416) is loved and respected across the world as one of the most powerful and creative of spiritual writers of all time.

Her book, Revelations of Divine Love, relates Julian’s stunning mystical experience of God’s compassion and love for all of humankind, and relates as well how Julian was challenged to grow in compassion and acceptance in response to this experience - compassionate acceptance of herself and others, and all that she found in God’s
creation.

Themes and ideas to be explored

  • Julian of Norwich and the story told by her Revelations

  • Understandings of Compassion from spiritual traditions and neuroscience

  • Compassion as the irreducible heart of Julian’s spirituality

  • Compassion as a way of being with different modalities: for self, for others, for God.

  • Challenges to compassion and faith and how we grow through them


This retreat with meditations is being co-presented by the Norwich Christian Meditation Centre and the Friends of Julian of Norwich.
