THE SACRED GAZE
Presenter: Fr. Terry Ryan
Saturday, February 2
9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
When we look at ourselves we get a distorted image. We see only our limitations and inadequacies. We feel that we are never enough. The Sacred Gaze is how God looks at us. This is the great second opinion of ourselves from God’s loving point of view.
The contemplative life is a way to see ourselves through the gaze of the Sacred. We find that we never have to impress with a resume of an illusional limitless self. God is a relationship, not a job interview. God loves. God does not fire us or reject us, or judge us for mistakes. The contemplative path lets go of the negative self-image, the self-judgement, and the compare/contrast with popular culture. We get to the ground of our divine nature.
Fr. Terry Ryan, CSP, a Paulist priest whose life-long focus of study and teaching has been ancient and contemporary mystics and contemplative prayer. A Centering Prayer practitioner, Fr. Terry lives for several months each year in Snowmass Trappist Monastery in Colorado, heart of the International Centering Prayer movement.
