St. Gregory Palamas


Meditating with the Mystics is a retreat series lead by Fr. Aidan. Each retreat will focus on a different saint or mystic from the Ancient Wisdom Traditions. Join us as we dive into the life and legend of Saint Gregory Palamas (1296 – 1359). Gregory was the archbishop of Thessaloniki in modern Greece. He is famous for his defense of hesychast spirituality, the mystical prayer tradition of Eastern Orthodoxy, and his theological distinction between God's essence and energies. Saint Gregory has been venerated as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church since 1368. Each Meditating with the Mystics retreat is independent with unique offerings and practices. This retreat will include a lectio divina and hesychast prayer. We also share a Mediterranean themed vegetarian potluck lunch. Space is limited to 10 people! When: 19 August 2023 // 10am-3:30pm Where: St. Francis Chapel (Community Center for Lunch) Cost: $40
