The Christine Center was fortunate to have Andrew Harvey as a presenter during our 2016 Annual Year-end Retreat, December 27-January 1.
An extraordinary spiritual teacher and founder of the Institute for Sacred Activism, acclaimed author of over 30 books, and mystical scholar, Andrew came to the Christine Center for an unforgettable week to offer daily reflection and soul conversation about the holy mystery of Mary of Nazareth, mother of Jesus, and icon of Wisdom, Mercy and Love. Attendees opened their hearts to the mystery, the blessings and the strength of the Mother love to help heal their heart.
Our special friend Jean Feraca interviewed Andrew one morning in what became a dynamic spiritual conversation.

Praise for Andrew Harvey
Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us. And when a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must be illumined as well. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky. Marianne Williamson
Andrew is a brilliant, inspired visionary who has the ability to interpret the meaning of the chaos and rapid changes that are redirecting the compass of our contemporary culture. He is a spiritual, intellectual, and cultural mystic whose passion is to awaken people to a new and essential empowerment in this world: sacred activism. Caroline Myss
