That was the title of LCWR’s Imagining Justice conference, which Colleen Kammer attended March 12-14 in Tucson, Arizona. The retreat was led by Sister Gail Worcelo, SGM, a former student of Father Thomas Berry, C.P., and one of his co-founders of the Green Mountain Monastery in Vermont.
Using the teachings of philosopher and scientist Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ, and Father Berry, Sister Gail helped participants better understand the movement of energy in the universe and how to tap into the energy fields and to manage them in order to attain greater self-enlightenment and to develop a coherence of the heart. From this place of greater wholeness, we can unleash the energies of love to create positive social change and to transform the world.
Sister Gail led the 50 religious and lay justice promoters through contemplative exercises, mutual awakening activities and personal and shared reflection to support her lessons. Participants enjoyed the sharing and exchange of knowledge about their congregations and ministries.
