The Wisdom of Mary Magdalene

On Saturday, April 8, please join us for this fourth workshop in Contemplative Outreach – Chicago’s Living Wisdom series.

This workshop will explore Mary Magdalene’s unwavering presence and devotion throughout the Paschal Mystery – and how conscious love can be a transforming force in our own lives as well. A contemplative rhythm will be held throughout the day: moving between meditative silence, sacred chanting, conscious work, teaching, and reflective dialogue.

Beth O'BrianBeth O’Brien, founder of Contemplative Presence (March, 2015), is a Benedictine Oblate of Holy Wisdom Ecumenical Monastery, spiritual director, and meditation teacher. A long time Centering Prayer practitioner, Beth has been a student of Cynthia Bourgeault and now carries forth the Wisdom lineage in gratitude.Beth interests include the rekindling of the Christian contemplative tradition, the mystical tradition at the heart of the world’s major religions, interSpiritual dialogue, and carrying compassion out into the world. Inspired by Teilhard de Chardin’s writings on human energy and convergence, she continues to seek an ever-depening knowing within an evolutionary and incarnational (embodied) spirituality.Living on the outskirts of Madison, WI, Beth is married and the mother of two young adult daughters. MA education, MA Religious Studies.



The workshop will take place 9:00AM – 4:00PM on Saturday April 8 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Mount Prospect, IL.
