The Life and Spirituality of Henri Nouwen: Summer Institute 2017
to Jun 21

The Life and Spirituality of Henri Nouwen: Summer Institute 2017

  • Oblate School of Theology (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Henri Nouwen is universally acclaimed as one of the most popular and influential spiritual writers of the 20th century. The author of more than 60 books, he taught at both Harvard and Yale and lectured extensively around the world. After nearly two decades of teaching at academic institutions, Nouwen went on to work with mentally and physically handicapped people at the L’Arche Daybreak community in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Perhaps more than any other person, he was helpful in having spirituality accepted as an academic discipline and for making spirituality popular in Protestant and Evangelical circles, while writing as a Roman Catholic. He was a complex man – an artist, a restless searcher, a hopeless romantic, a deeply committed Christian, a man of deep prayer, and a priest. All this helped shape his writings, both in depth and in breadth. To meet and read Henri Nouwen is to be more-properly introduced to yourself.

This is an Institute for the struggling and the restless, as well as for the prayerful and the faith-filled. Come join us for three days of drinking from the deep well that was Henri Nouwen.


Gabrielle Earnshaw – Editor of Love, Henri: Letters on the Spiritual Life

David Haas – Liturgical composer, author and recording artist

Michael W. Higgins – Henri Nouwen biographer and documentarian

Tina Karagulian – Spiritual director, author and artist

How does forgiveness transform pain into renewed health of body, mind and soul?

We invite you to explore forgiveness in a holistic way through prayer, silence, body movement, imagery,guided meditation, creativity, and ritual.

au coucher du soleil
(bedtime of the sun)

Trace the sun’s descent,
dripping with colors
of the day’s radiant glow,
the touch of water’s kiss,
and the first, cool breath
of night’s embrace.
Linger here, 
melted sky into lapping wave,
buoyed by suns
that daily cast nets
of frolic and wisdom
upon unsuspecting hearts,
to savor the moment
and every waking tomorrow.
© Tina Karagulian, 2015
