At the Still Point of the Turning World: Praying with T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets

Thursday evenings (6:45-8:20 pm) – February 15 and 22; March 1, 8 and 15

Monastery Guesthouse Common Room

Leader: Br. Keith Nelson, SSJE

T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets can be read as a charter for Christian contemplative life in the modern world, a vision for all who seek to balance silence and words, stillness and loving service in the way of Christ. Through shared silence and deep attention to the spiritual motives in its authorship, we’ll explore this master poem as a doorway into the mystery of God.

Limited to 10 participants with ability to commit to all sessions.
