Breathing into the Whole of Life
Thursday 5/26 10:00 - 11:30 am
We will use our bodies and the simple acts of breathing, drinking, eating, and lighting a candle as gateways to connecting with and praying through air, water, earth and fire.
5/26 - Fire The world needs your inner lamp to be burning brightly! Our individual sparks can be too easily extinguished if they are not connected to the light of the Divine. A candle flame will be our entry point into meditations on the sun, the Big Bang, and the light of love within all things. Come explore how you can pray through fire.
“When the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you, it is you who belong to this land.”
Upcoming Art Exhibit and Presentation: Exploring Exposure
Kate Gray, Artist May 2 - June 30
In these prints, Kate Gray interprets her experience living in Morocco, translating her thoughts and ideas about culture, religion, femininity, and a sense of home and community into designs that are meant to ask questions, not answer them.
Artist Presentation: Finding Home in an Interfaith Community Thursday, 5/5, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
How do you engage in interfaith conversation? Connecting with others through interfaith dialogue is a powerful experience that can have a positive impact on a diverse community. Come learn strategies and practices for shaping interfaith dialogue with intention and impact.
During this week-long retreat, you will explore your personal and professional experiences of compassion, reenergize your ability to offer loving kindness, and go forth with a renewed commitment to be a compassionate presence for yourself and those who are in the midst of pain, struggle and transition.
Based on the format and themes of The Institute of Compassionate Presence, our days will alternate content with participative processes.
