Ocean of Mercy: A Video from Spiritual Pilates

Last weekend was an amazing retreat – it’s always so hard to recap retreats because so much happens. I find that it often takes a long time to really process everything that went on, from learnings, to meeting so many new people, to the presentations. One of the things I like to do after a retreat, is to create a little video on Vimeo.

I’m proud to present “Spiritual Pilates” with the song “Ocean of Mercy” by Michael John Poirier, which we played on Saturday evening as part of our reconciliation service. I hope it provides a little three and half minute retreat from your day. I especially want to thank Liz and Sister Michelle for the inspiration for some of these quotes. You were both very much at the retreat in spirit, as were the many readers here and bloggers that I follow. I want each of you to know how much this community of kindred spirits means to me. 🙂

Likewise, I want to thank all of those who attended the retreat. Their willingness to share and participate was so inspiring. There was a lot of soul work done, a lot of honest reflection. This is not easy. I applaud everyone who was there for their hard work.

And, I thank Father Rusty. As always, it is a joy to lead with him. Words can’t express how much I cherish our time together. I learn so much with each retreat!

Enjoy! And Happy early Saint Patrick’s Day, all!
