I"n the beginning was the Conversation." This is how the first line of the gospel of John was translated for the first four centuries before the patriarchy of the newly approved church of the Roman Empire changed it to "Word." This daylong retreat explores the power of restoring Conversation as a metaphor of Christ and a modality of spirituality restoring the great conversation with All That Is (Meister Eckhart).  Register through Stillpoint at Beckside.
