Archdeacon Max Woolaver leads this Quiet Day at St. John’s Convent in Toronto on November 12.
Through prayer with the Shema (“Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One…”) and a practice of Lectio Divina with St. John of the Cross, participants will learn how to respond to the guidance of the Holy Spirit from within their experience of grief. The day offers a balance of time together and time alone.
At the end of the day, people should leave with a clear and simple method of practice which will enable them to continue to “mine” the deep spiritual resources latent in the grief experience itself.
Max Woolaver, the Rector of St. Andrew’s Grimsby, is a graduate of the Shalem program for spiritual directors.
