Conversation

 

The ageless mountains are full of your glory
the vast seas swell with your might
the shining skies expand beyond our imagining
so we pause to praise
we wait in wonder
we listen to learn
of the mountain glory within us
of the sea force in our veins
of love’s shining infinity.
Grant us the grace, O God,
to serve this inner universe of soul among us.

-from Praying With the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace by John Philip Newell

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL through July 21!

In these challenging times, we are often called upon to speak up, show up and live our values more boldly. But it can be difficult to muster the courage to do this. What might we learn from ancient teachings and practices that inspire this understanding, helping us to live more courageously, with greater vulnerability and strength today?

Join author Karen Hering and Qigong teacher Lisa Schlingerman as they lead participants in guided writing, small group conversation, Qigong, Chinese calligraphy (no experience needed!) and other activities both playful and contemplative to help us access the wisdom and courage found in our own lives and bodies.
