Sisters of Providence to host ‘Mystics – A Journey of Discovery’

Plan on joining the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in person or virtually for the upcoming program “Mystics – A Journey of Discovery.”

The workshop will take place from 1:30-3:30 p.m., on Sunday, Jan. 29, in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, and will focus on Herman Hesse (1877-1962), a German-Swiss poet, novelist and painter.

Facilitators for the workshops include Sister Paula Damiano, SP, Sister Jan Craven, SP, and Indiana State University Professor Dr. Arthur Feinsod.

The final mystics workshop will focus on Saint Bridget of Sweden (1303-1373), a wife, mother, nun and mystic, and is scheduled for March 19.

Sister Paula said it is important to learn more about mystics from a religious point of view. “There are many different ways in which a mystic is identified,” Sister Paula said. “Simply put, a mystic is someone who has an experience of union with The Divine.”

Cost to attend is $25 per session, which includes all materials and refreshments. The registration deadline for the January session is Jan. 26.
