Saturday, January 26, 2019

8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Rev. William Redfield

This session will review the key Christian Wisdom teachings from the first session and extend these to cover a new way of being present and seeing the world from a viewpoint of Gratitude, Abundance, Connection and Coherence. Exploring Wisdom's View from the Cross allows us to embrace the Paschal Mystery in our own lives with greater power and meaning. Christian Loving Kindness practices will be introduced.

Offering: $65 (includes lunch)

This is part 2 of a 3-part series entitled Exploring Wisdom Christianity: 3 Days of Deepening Practice & Inquiry.  

This program will consist of a balance and rhythm of Wisdom teaching, spiritual practice, directed discussion, and shared ritual. Because they will be spread out over several months, participants will be given time for integration. While these days of practice can stand alone, together they will build toward sequential coherence that will serve as a firm foundation for future Wisdom learnings. Familiarity with Centering Prayer or other spiritual practices is necessary.
