This retreat explores the philosophy and practices of the Chakra System, one of the many sacred gifts given to us by God to be understood, nurtured and practiced in our spiritual journey. Experience its value in your own journey, practice and ministry. By truly understanding the beauty of the chakras in your own life, you can bring a deeper understanding and compassion to your life’s work.
Learn about the interesting history and modern adaptations of these graceful, meandering pathways, how they differ from mazes, and how to locate dozens of public labyrinths in the Twin Cities area. Come learn ways to introduce the labyrinth in your setting or deepen your experience to a broader use of the labyrinth in your work and life.
Inspired by poetry, stories, images and ancient wisdom teachings, Karen Hering will use guided writing, conversation and other reflective activities to cultivate our courageous engagement with the unknowns of the year ahead and our creative participation in shaping what emerges over time
Zen art expresses the inexpressible as it helps to transform the way we see ourselves in the world. It is both the ultimate statement and the beginning of the journey all at once. The form of the circle is iconic to the formation of many languages, be it as a symbol for the moon, the sun, the wheel of reality. Known as the ensō in Japan, it is the most common subject of zen calligraphy. Its essence can be difficult to grasp.
