r Sister Margaret Galiardi from Amityville has been part of the ICCD staff since 2011!

Join Us For…Enter the Chaos: Engage the Differences to Make a Difference! November 14 – 17, 2019, Racine, WI, a four-day program that draws on:

  • the transformative power of contemplation
  • conscious intent of the values we want to embody
  • capacity to exercise contemplative power
  • understanding our role in the evolutionary process
  • willingness to welcome our own ongoing personal transformation

Since its beginning in 2002, the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue (ICCD) has had extensive experience inviting people to engage the impasse in their lives through processes of communal contemplation and dialogue. Our dear Sister, Margaret Galiardi, OP, has been part of the ICCD staff since 2011. In addition, she offers spiritual direction/accompaniment to both individuals and groups; and designs and facilitates workshops and retreats focused around spirituality for the 21st Century, with an emphasis on the integration of contemplation with justice for people and planet. While Margaret served in elected leadership, she also was the North American Co-Promoter on Justice for the world-wide Dominican Order. Margaret is a known speaker and author. She spent the 2009-2010 year living in silence and solitude with the Trappistine Sister Monks in the Red Wood Forest on the Lost Coast of Northern California.

If you can’t make the November 2019 program, join us February 13 – 16, 2020, Marriotsville, MD.
