PCS 708 - Preparing the Heart’s Sanctuary – Advent Marian reflections to renew your spirit and embrace the birth of Christ within
A six-week self-paced independent study
Begin the course any time after registration
Prepared by Sibyl Dana Reynolds
This six-week, gently paced independent study, is offered for your personal reflection and spiritual enrichment throughout the sacred season of Advent, concluding with Epiphany.
Each week's reflection will explore Mary's journey from the Annunciation to Jesus's birth and beyond. Mary, Mother of Jesus, will inspire our hearts as we envision and embody our sacred sanctuaries, our oratories, within us. We will reflect with the symbols and mystical/human nature of Mary, as we contemplate the depth of this holy season.
Each week we will journey with Mary through Scripture, poetry, imagery, music and story.
Simple journal reflections will accompany each Marian devotion. Additionally, invitations for sacred creative expression will be provided weekly.
With the arrival of Epiphany, we will consider ways to contemplate and foster our personal spiritual intentions for the New Year.
For thirty-five years, as an author, spiritual director and passionate journaler, I have shared spiritual and creative practices with women through my books, online courses, sacred art-making and residential retreats. As retired bishop and the foundress of a spiritual and contemplative women's global community, Belle Coeur Sisterhood, I believe when a woman creates time and space to contemplate, write, and respond…transformation occurs. It’s the work and joy of my heart to offer sacred, prayerful, study and practices as pathways to discovery for a woman’s personal interior journey.
