The Divine Milieu has illuminated the way for countless spiritual seekers. Now, this six-part retreat invites you, too, to reflect on Teilhard de Chardin’s powerful vision of the universe.

A Jesuit priest and geologist, Teilhard articulates a vision at once cosmic and personal. His posthumously published masterpiece, The Divine Milieu (1957), maps the horizons of transcendence on the one hand and intimacy on the other. The more time you spend with its pages, the more radiantly you will see the contours of our true nature and our home in God. This is a perfect opportunity for you to plumb the depths of your soul, heighten your Christic life, and serve the world with greater enlightenment.

You couldn’t ask for a more gifted instructor than Sr. Kathleen Deignan. Aside from being an expert on contemporary mystics like Teilhard and Thomas Merton, Sr. Deignan is also an accomplished musician. She braids her beautiful music into spiritual explorations of The Divine Milieu to create a retreat experience you’ll never forget.

    Spring Survey: April 2017

    The delivery voice, the music, and the emphasis. It was intimate and yet expansive. I was swept into the Divine Milieu like never before.

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    While there are many courses offered by NYKM, I gravitate toward the mystics, feeling this is the most authentic, fixed, permanent part of the Church. There are more titles I plan to purchase : ) Thank you for such a range of program offerings. I always look forward to and study the catalogs!
