Conspire 2018: The Path of Descent as Path of Transformation
A live webcast with Richard Rohr and friends, hosted at Saint Mark’s, Bloedel Hall
August 31, 12-7 p.m.; September 1, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; September 2, 8:15 a.m.-5 p.m.
Come and explore contemplative teachings, practices, reflection, and conversation with Richard Rohr, Barbara Holmes, Brian McLaren, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Mirabai Starr to reconsider dark times as sacred and to find companionship, community, and courage for your own unique journey of becoming Love in our world. The mystics of many spiritual traditions teach the path of descent—surrender, generative self-emptying—as the way of transformation. More than ideas or success, the suffering (personal and communal) and woundedness we inevitably experience can be our teachers. Open heart, mind, and body to the surprising wisdom to be found in transforming darkness and descent. Fee is $10, which includes refreshments, light breakfast, and post-webcast access to videos.
Enneagram 3.0—Diving Deeper on your Spiritual Journey
Facilitated by Sarah Walston, MA, MEd, LMHC, certified Enneagram instructor
Friday September 14; 6-8 p.m.
Saturday September 15, 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Bloedel Hall
Building on two earlier workshops in 2017, this workshop will focus in greater detail in three areas: how the Enneagram informs dynamics of interpersonal relationships in family systems, the work place and other settings; common pitfalls in misidentification of one's Enneagram type; and how the Enneagram serves as companion on the spiritual journey of self-work and communal experience. Fee is $50 for the two-day workshop, which includes Saturday light breakfast and lunch. Register here.
Saturday, November 3, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Skinner Hall
Virginia Maksymowicz, artist of the Stations of the Cross that hung in the nave during Lent, will lead an interactive workshop on visual arts and spirituality. In the morning, Ms. Maksymowicz will consider the power of visual art to access spiritual yearnings and convictions and will lead the group in creative exploration of making art as spiritual experience. After lunch, participants will go to the Henry Art Gallery to view James Turrell’s “Light Reign” and to engage other works specifically chosen for this workshop. Fee: $60. Register here.
