The contemplative life is found in an awareness of the sacredness of each moment. If we are always thinking about the past or worrying about the future, we are missing out on life! Practicing the Presence of God, we learn to be in the moment, experiencing the Divine, God, in every moment.
I am available to lead retreats, spiritual renewal days, quiet days and workshops through the sponsorship of Churches and other organizations. If you like to host a retreat and are interested in the retreat topics below or have questions about the offered retreats, please contact me.
“After 43 years in pastoral ministry, at moments I am still awakened and surprised by God’s goodness. Such a moment of goodness visited when my wife, Mary and I attended a contemplative retreat conducted by Bettina Schuller. The presence of God’s gentleness pervaded the space of our gathering. The recovery of the place of silence began to refocus itself, as the heart began to find rest and comfort. Yet at an even deeper level as we entered this transforming moment, we were being challenged to live from these deeper places. We were sent forth to share and witness this peace and comfort, this healing in silence, with our troubled distracted world. It was a profound transforming moment for both of us.” The Rev. Liam Collins, Rector at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Savannah, Georgia.
I have added personal retreats to my schedule. If you are interested in a personal retreat, please contact me. I am not offering scheduled retreats this year because I am working on different projects to enhance my retreat work.
