Evening of Retreat: The Sisters of Belle Cœur:
 A Medieval Sisterhood for Contemporary Times Presented by Sibyl Dana Reynolds Tuesday, September 22, 2015 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Pendle Hill Retreat Center…Reading Room in the Main House
338 Plush Mill Rd, Wallingford, PA 19086

Many women today express a common desire and mutual longing for spiritual sisterhood, to explore the questions and creative stirrings we carry within our hearts and souls. Join Sibyl Dana Reynolds for a meditative and prayerful evening as she shares the cosmological template for Belle Cœur (Beautiful Heart) Sisterhood. We will explore the way of Belle Cœur’s four pathways including: Spirit, Sacrament, Sisterhood and Service and the four Belle Cœur sacred practices including Devotion, Craft, Study, and Story.
Belle Cœur sisterhood is a Christ-centered, contemplative, monastic community that draws inspiration from Sophia Wisdom, the medieval Beguine movement, and the natural world. The way of Belle Cœur can be a solo experience to deepen one’s spiritual journey. Additionally, this sacred template of formation may be shared collectively ( in sisterhood) by small groups and communities seeking a deeper spiritual and creative connection.
This evening’s presentation will be a prayerful, reflective, shared experience. Please bring your journal. A donation to benefit the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests will be appreciated for this event. Thank you.
