Contemplative in the Kootenays

December 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The December meeting of Contemplative in the Kootenays will be a one-day Advent Retreat. We will meet at the home of Jill Cowan (directions below).

This retreat will invite you to enter deeply into the Advent story: we will practice seeing into the mythic elements of the story, the public, contemporary illustrations of this story, and the way that we live it in our own interior life. It will be a time for reflection, so please bring your journal as well as your lunch. We will begin and close our work with centering prayer; and end with open communion.

For more information, please contact Therese at descamp(at)hearts rest(dot)com.


Address: 2255 Bealby Point Road;   250 352-3250

Take Highway 3A to the east end of Nelson. Whichever direction you come from, turn up the hill at the Dairy Queen just by the Orange Bridge on Kokanee St. (at the east end of Nelson).
Go up one block; turn left on 3rd Street.
Go two blocks and then turn right on Gordon Road.
Go along this road about 5 blocks; you’ll be halfway up the hill. The sign on the left will say, “8th/To Bealby Point.”
Travel along this road a LONG way!  The name of the road will change from Bealby Road to Bealby Point Road. You will pass Bealby Point–don’t turn left toward it, but keep on going.
You will see a road cross the tracks and a stop sign, but keep going.
At the second stop sign (which is the end of the road), take a left over the railway tracks. This road goes down toward the water and turns back toward town. Jill’s home is the 3rd driveway on the right.
