The Awakening Self and Our Preoccupations 

  • -
Fr Christopher Gorst OSB 
En-suite: £145.00 / Standard: £135.00

The Ancient Church Fathers and Monks were aware of Eight Preoccupations which could divert or distract a person’s spiritual path to God.

In this Retreat, we examine a modern psychologist’s interpretation of ‘Spirituality and the Awakening Self’ (Dr David G Benner) and try to show that these Ancient insights and Preoccupations can still disrupt our awakening and journey, towards our final goal of consciousness and union in God.
