Workshop Details

How do we find our spiritual center? Who is the God we seek? Where do we look when we search for the Divine? Questions about God, spirituality, humanity, and authentic living are not separate questions about separate realities, but one single question about aspects of the same mystery. Hidden richness can be found in our day-to-day lives, where we meet our business, educational, and personal responsibilities; nurture relationships; make ends meet; and deal with the unpredictable and inevitable circumstances that affect our health, happiness, and well-being. Many of us blessed with a sense of life's sacredness are spiritually homeless and hungry. We struggle to find places or people who share our deepest longings. We long for affirmation of our holy hunch that God is the essence of us.
We invite individuals and couples from all walks of life to join us as we cut across and beyond our spiritual experiences to build confidence in and resonate with the spiritual dimension of life, and seek to intuit the divine that abides within. Dialogue, experiential exercises, meditation, dreamwork, and writing will help us listen to our soulful selves, touch our inner-longing, and embrace the persistent certainty of our essence.
