Edith Stein, Etty Hillesum and Simone Weil: A Spirituality for Living through a Time of Crisis
This workshop/retreat will be looking at three mystics, saints and writers who lived during the Second World War. They were contemporaries – all Jewish – and all came to similar wisdom about living through a time of crisis. The workshop/retreat will look at their lives and the advise they give for challenging situations. All of them – in more dramatic ways than today – found their opportunities were increasingly limited and yet found meaning in the constraints they had to live under. It is a workshop/retreat for those trying to make good use of this time of semi-lockdown.
