What Makes you Come Alive? Weekend Retreat

Friday, 26 April @ 4:00 pm - Sunday, 28 April @ 3:00 pm

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Dr. Howard Thurman (1899-1981)


Like St Ignatius, Howard Thurman was a follower of Jesus, theologian, teacher, mentor, writer, sacred activist, and a mystic.

Ignatian spirituality encourages us to attend to the desires of our hearts, what gives us life. In the same way Howard Thurman’s words guide us in this direction.

This weekend retreat invites you to discern what makes you come alive through the lived wisdom of Thurman. You will be encouraged to join with the Source of all life to listen for the ‘sound of the genuine within’. To come alive to your own song (melody); allowing your true voice to emerge from all other voices and noise.

“The most crucial clue to a knowledge of [God] is to be found in the most honest and most total knowledge of self.” Howard Thurman, The Inward Journey.
