Gloria Vigilione

with Gloria Viglione



Within the Advent Season, lies the potential of interior stillness, presence, and contemplation. As darkness anticipates the Light, our inner journey is especially receptive to the ways we can make space for the Light within. This retreat into music is intended to open your soul to new ways of listening.

Come and share a morning of live contemplative musical offerings, silent stillness, simple words and meditative movement that will prepare you for the Advent mood. Gloria will offer harp, vocals, bells, and brief excerpts from poetry, ancient text or scripture. We will begin with 20 minutes of centering prayer. During our break, we will maintain SILENCE. Please come, and simply receive. Comfortable clothing suggested.

As a certified Music-Thanatologist for over 25 years, Gloria has attended the dying and their loved ones with Prescriptive Music Vigils. Using the presence of being, music, and the healing arts, she has collaborated for retreats, workshops, celebrations, and services. Her background also includes Occupational Therapy with a neurologic emphasis.

Cost:   $35 (Comfortable clothing suggested)

The Cloud of Unknowing


The Cloud of Unknowing offers unique guidance for anyone who desires intimate contact with God.


In these conferences, you will explore the sources of what has come to be known as “centering prayer.” You will discover its roots in the Desert Fathers and Mothers, emergent contemplatives who labored to “put on the mind and heart of Christ.” You will trace the unfolding of the sacred science of spiritual transformation through its earliest pioneers to its ongoing development in our day. In learning the practice of “dark” contemplation, you will come to sense the ineffable mystery and hiddenness.



Presented by gifted professor, author, and psalmist, Sr. Kathleen Deignan, C.N.D., these six conferences will deepen your spirituality. You will discover the teachings of one of the great classics of the Christian tradition, which has profoundly influenced classical and contemporary spirituality.


$80 (includes the book, The Cloud of Unknowing by William Johnston)

When:   Six Thursdays, January 19 - February 23  
    6:30 - 9:00 p.m.  
RSVP:   Wednesday,, January 18
