Brazil: Essential Teaching Weekend

It was a very enriching and joyful Essential Teachings Weekend.

We were fortunate to have warm and sunny days in the middle of our “winter” season in a mood of significant friendship and community among participants coming from different and distant parts of Brazil warmly welcomed by the Marianist Sisters of Canan who run that retreat house.

We had participants coming from different cities such as Goiania-GO, Rio de Janeiro-RJ, Chapeco-SC, Varginha-MG, Santa Rosa de Viterbo-SP, Campinas-SP, Santos-SP, Vinhedo-SP and São Paulo-SP.

There was a significant and inspiring different experiences sharing. The goup dinamycs were very energetic, joyful and enriching. Days were punctuated by three different periods of prayer, psalmody, readings and meditation.

Though short it was an experience of contemplative life which we were all thankful to bring back home.
