Biography

Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB., is an author and spiritual guide and a Benedictine monastic of St. Scholastica Monastery in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She travels throughout the United States and Canada as a retreat dirctor. In her retreats seekers are guided through experiences of silence, contemplation, and faith sharing. Many of her retreat themes come from her writings. She also draws extensively from literature and poetry and enjoys creating rituals.

Wiederkehr is a master of everyday spirituality. She has taken the Benedictine tradition of Lectio Divina (divine reading) and expanded it into new fields of wonder. To her, sacred texts are all around us. She discerns evidence of God's presence in nature, relationships, and the daily rounds of life. As a skilled and creative devotional writer, Wiederkehr can always be depended upon for images or personal anecdotes that are brimming with beauty and insight. She weaves these together into books that combine observations with prayers and suggested passages to read — making them perfect for personal and group retreats.
