9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Join Mark Nepo for a deeper conversation and reflection around recognizing and encouraging community. Explore the power of community, how the life of connection can add more meaning to our lives, and how to develop care-based communities.
“Why tend to all this?” asks Nepo. “ Because somewhere another child is being born who will ask us things we don’t yet know, and we must have some sense of how to account for our time on Earth. It is both comforting and challenging to realize that no one person can wrestle from the Earth the song of how we can survive together and no one voice can sing that chorus…we need each other more than ever.”
This event is co-hosted by St. Catherine University’s Holistic Health Studies and Theology Departments and Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality.
“Mark Nepo returns us to an enduring truth: We must love one another—or perish. Just as medieval monks kept literacy alive during the dark ages, he shows us how we too must keep alive the literacy of the heart, no matter how deafening the noise of hate.”
-Valarie Kaur, Sikh Activist and Founder of the Revolutionary Love Project
Mark Nepo devotes his writing and teaching to the journey of inner transformation and the life of relationship.
