One River, Many Streams, The Labyrinth as an Interspiritual Path
September 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm| $70
We are living in an unfolding spiritual landscape. East and West are converging, our world is shrinking. Some of us are no longer at home in the spiritual/religious traditions we grew up in. We find that our spiritual streams have run dry. We yearn for more but what might that more be?
“The time has come for us to share one another’s riches”, (Bede Griffiths a Benedictine monk who ran an Ashram for Hindus and Christians in India). In this workshop we will do some thoughtful and respectful meandering along the labyrinth’s interspiritual path together. We will drink from some of the contemplative practices, stories and rituals of other spiritual wisdom traditions around the globe. We will have conversations on our way to the center where all streams merge into the One River, the Living Source of all our relations. And finally we will return, walking the same path, nourished by our journey.
Where ever you are on your path, even if you find yourself sitting on the River”s bank, observing, unsure,— you are welcome. All are welcome.
The workshop fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch and all supporting materials.
