Sister Ann Itotia, a Mercy Sister, who lectures in Tangaza University. She had been on the leadership teams of the Mercy Sisters in Africa. Since 2008, she has been teaching creation spirituality.
She talked about the unfolding story of love and the meaning of love. She stressed the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of coming home to the cosmos opens us to diversity of creation in relation to faith, science and praxis.
She introduced the story of Moses and its symbolism enables us to reflect on the journeys that we make in order to become fully who we are and for whom that we are.
Sister Ann explained how a worldview is a framework of ideas and attitudes about the world, ourselves and life. It is a system of beliefs that provides answers to fundamental questions and especially to the question, ‘Who am I?’
In the second session, Sister Ann pointed out the difference between the traditional worldview with its emphasis on separate consciousness and dualism, and the idea of non-dualistic consciousness.
In the afternoon, Tony invited the Brothers to harvest the learnings of the previous sessions and asked what was holding the Brothers’ attention, what was challenging them and how they were integrating this cosmic journey and spirituality into their lives.
