Offering a balanced path for spiritual transformation grounded in prayer and practice, drawing on the Christian contemplative tradition while respecting the diversity of experiences born from contemplative practices of other traditions.
Come and explore contemplative teachings, practices, reflection, and conversation with Richard Rohr, Barbara Holmes, Brian McLaren, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Mirabai Starr to reconsider dark times as sacred and to find companionship, community, and courage for your own unique journey of becoming Love in our world. The mystics of many spiritual traditions teach the path of descent—surrender, generative self-emptying—as the way of transformation. More than ideas or success, the suffering (personal and communal) and woundedness we inevitably experience can be our teachers. Open heart, mind, and body to the surprising wisdom to be found in transforming darkness and descent. Fee is $10, which includes refreshments, light breakfast, and post-webcast access to videos.
Enneagram Workshop—Diving Deeper on your Spiritual Journey
Facilitated by Sarah Walston, MA, MEd, LMHC, certified Enneagram instructor
Friday September 14; 6-8 p.m.
Saturday September 15, 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Bloedel Hall
In this workshop participants will focus in greater detail in three areas: how the Enneagram informs dynamics of interpersonal relationships in family systems, the work place and other settings; common pitfalls in misidentification of one’s Enneagram type; and how the Enneagram serves as companion on the spiritual journey of self-work and communal experience. Attendance at prior workshops is not required, but participants should arrive knowing what enneagram type they are. Fee is $50 for the two-day workshop, which includes Saturday light breakfast and lunch.
