He received rabbinical ordination from the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion, and holds a PhD from Union Graduate School. A congregational rabbi for 20 years, Rabbi Rami currently co-directs One River Wisdom School, writes a regular column for Spirituality & Health magazine called Roadside Assistance for the Spiritual Traveler, and hosts the weekly Internet radio show, How to be a Holy Rascal. His newest book is Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent.

-Joan Borysenko

Advent Contemplative Retreat

The Light Inside the Dark: Cultivating the Selfless Self

"For the Christian, meditation is not a way to esoteric knowledge. It is a way to greater love. It is not a way of speculation but of practice... It opens the eye of wisdom in those who practice it in faith, because it opens the deepest center to release the power of Christ." -Laurence Freeman

This five day contemplative retreat takes place in the serene atmosphere of the Sonoran Desert at the Redemptorist Center for Renewal. The quiet of the desert provides an ideal container as we wait in the darkness of Advent to give birth to the Light within us. The darkness we experience before the winter solstice is held to be a sacred time of waiting and renewal in all cultures. In this retreat we will draw on the wisdom of contemplative teachers, Laurence Freeman and John Tarrant and the practice of contemplative prayer to help us open our hearts to the Light of the Selfless Self within each of us.
