Disney Monatics Retreats
What do some of Disney's most popular attractions have to teach me about my relationship with God? A Disney Monastic wants to know.
The book Disney Monastics: a theme park travel guide for the God seeker suggests that guests at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida create a temporary community, set apart for something intentional. Claiming space and walking thorugh the Main Gate with intentionality, vision and purpose, determines what lens the guest experiences the parks through..
Disney Monastics pray, study, engage and respond.
A community of Disney Monastics enters the Walt Disney World Resort with the intention of hearing the call of God in their lives. A spiritual community is created at the place "where dreams come true."
Throughout the retreat, participants begin to work on their Holy Story or Spiritual Autobiography. Additionally, rhythm and discipline outside of community is created when individuals begin to write a Rule of Life.
Monastics pray the daily office. In-park experiences are complimented by Theological Reflection. Monastics discover how spiritual messages are embedded in popular culture.
