In this retreat experience we will explore Saint Theresa of Avila's classic work The Interior Castle. We will allow Theresa to guide us through the mansions of our own soul, until we come to the seventh and innermost mansion, in which God lives. An emphasis will be given to the actual experience of the challenges, potential stuck places and mystical awakenings that we experience in this interior journey through our own soul to discover God within and beyond us calling us to divine union.
