THE WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION - USA

May 1-3, 2015
Houston, TX

A Retreat with Fr. Cyprian Consiglio OSB Cam
before the National Council Meeting
May 3-4, 2015


Join meditators from around the US for an inspiring retreat with Fr. Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam. Fr. Cyprian is a Benedictine monk of the New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur, CA, where he serves as prior. A musician, spiritual teacher, and scholar of spiritual traditions, Fr. Cyprian has given retreats and conferences around the world, and has published numerous collections of original sacred, world and liturgical music, as well as books and articles.

Based on the pioneering work of English Benedictine, Bede Griffiths, and his predecessor, Abhishiktananda, the French Benedictine formerly known as Fr. Henri le Saux, OSB, Fr. Cyprian’s teaching incorporates the best of Eastern philosophy and practice with Western spirituality, toward the new mysticism of the 21st century, and aimed at the whole person – spirit, mind and body.
