The Divine Meeting of Marriage Retreat
Virginia Theological Seminary, sponsored by St. Mary's Arlington
Over two days, Stefanie and Arthur will be leading couples on an exploration of the gifts of marriage. To begin, we will tie our marriages deeply to our faith and its traditions, both those familiar and those that have left or been left by the church. We also will learn to look into our marriages with the newer lenses of psychology, providing us with a framework to seek a more spacious and creative approach to knowing our partners and to freeing our marriages up to move forward. Lastly, we will seek to engage in contemplative practices, which have so often been needlessly relegated to private life, as a way of co-discerning the deeper purposes and privileges of our unions.
Rev. Stefanie Taylor Chaplain, St. Martins Episcopal School, Atlanta
Arthur Taylor, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist
The Taylors have been working together in the field of integrative spirituality and positive psychology since they were married seven years ago. In that time they have been blessed with two children and have discovered that interacting with people on strictly a spiritual or psychological level is lacking. Human beings, whether they believe in God or not, are more than just physical or mental species; there is a soul to be accounted for and it needs to be nourished, healed and given attention.
