Women from IDI GTA and Sisterhood of St. John the Divine have organized a one-day interfaith retreat to bring together the believers of three Abrahamic Religions.
Jewish, Christian and Muslim women gathered to discuss the female role models in their respective faith traditions.
Experiencing the daily life of the women living in SSJD, quiet lunch (first time to stay quiet during lunch for some of us:) quiet meditation in the gardens, LABYRINTH experience. Plus tour of the facility with impressive history, art displays and insights on sisters daily life…..
Our day was like a study tour; visiting a hidden spiritual treasure island in the middle of Toronto.
The day ended with personal experience sharing session. We all found a piece of our souls in this quiet experience. The highlight of the sharing time: Other than name of our diverse religions or paths, our spirituality is the power uniting us.
We all agreed only one day was not enough for this sisterhood.
These will be more quiet day experiences in small groups, however, it won’ t be announced in our website please email us if you are interested…
