OSSINING, N.Y. -- A four-day program on ordinary mystics and prayer, led by spiritual specialist Brother Don Bisson, will take place at Mariandale in Ossining.
The ecumenical retreat and conference center is run by the Dominican Sisters of Hope.
Bisson, a Marist brother from Esopus, will present “Ordinary Mystics: Living Intense Prayers in the World” from Thursday, June 23, through Sunday, June 26.
Sandra Lommasson, founder and executive director of Bread of Life, a faith-based educational nonprofit, called Bisson “a gifted teacher and guide” who “makes the journey accessible to any who are ready to undertake the holy, healing journey into a deepening relationship with God -- and into a better understanding of self.”
The silent, directed retreat at Mariandale will, organizers said, invite “participants to go deeper into their experiences of God.”
The fee can range from $360 to $380, depending on the participant’s ability to pay.
It includes overnight accommodations, meals, and the program itself.
The center is located at 299 N. Highland Ave.
