Letting Teresa Speak

Every Saturday from January 22 to February 26 2022, 4pm to 5.30pm. Hosted by The Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality, Oxford.

Your course presenter - Sr Jo Robson, OCD: is a member of the Carmelite community in Ware, Hertfordshire. She is currently the joint coordinator of the initial formation programme for Carmelite sisters in the UK and a member of the editorial team for Mount Carmel. She is part of the Beyond Teresa research project based at St Mary’s University in Twickenham and is presently exploring patristic influences on St Teresa’s life and writings.

2022 marks the fourth centenary of the canonisation of Teresa of Avila by Pope Gregory XV. Four hundred years later, the example of Teresa’s life, and the precepts of her mystical teaching, continue to guide, instruct, and inspire. This course will let Teresa speak to us afresh, leading us deep into the intimate friendship with Christ that she enjoyed and to which she longed to draw others.

The course is suitable for those with little or no previous contact with Carmelite spirituality, for those wishing to ‘find a way in’ to Teresa’s writings, and for those who wish to develop further their appreciation of her unique teaching on prayer.
