TERESA OF AVILA
Laura Cassidy, Ph.D
For Teresa of Avila friendship was the most important way of relating to people and to God. Her Carmelite monasteries were founded to be communities of friends who were friends with God.
This powerful relational dynamic became the way of walking into deeper and deeper intimacy with God. On this journey she learned how to rely on God, how to trust in the midst of conflict and hardship and was transformed from a caterpillar to a butterfly!
In this time we will explore Teresa’s friendship with Christ and what such a friendship means by reflecting upon her life and her writings. Through quiet, personal prayer, discussion and Lectio we will explore Teresa’s wisdom for our time.
Laurie presented Tuning into the Mundane here at the Center in the Fall of 2018 and we are delighted to have her back!
She is both a theologian and a spiritual director and has served as associate professor and chair of the religious studies department at Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Trained in Ignatian spirituality, Laurie graduated in 1989 from Creighton University with a Master’s Degree in Christian spirituality. She has ministered in the area of spirituality for the past thirty years through spiritual direction, retreats, and workshops throughout the United States.
