At the Intersection of Science and Spirituality: Contemplative Consciousness and the Zest for Life

Join us as we learn the tools of sacred transformation in creating a world of integrity, responsibility, joy, and love.

Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography and Soul Mythology
In a series of four workshops, we will explore personal stories, the myths generated by those stories, and the truths and archetypes that lie within those myths. Through reflection and examination, we will identify impactful life events, which will then help us craft a narrative around one. No previous writing experience is necessary – these stories are expected to be written simply, as though told to a trusted friend.

Engaged Transformational Listening
Our listening skills impact our experience of ourselves, others and our world. Most often we hear what we are wired to hear, not necessarily what is actually being shared. This program explores the dynamics of listening, learning about our own ‘automatic’ listening with the intention of becoming aware of what impede or deepen our connections. At the conclusion of the 5 week program you will have skills to shift one or more listening habits. You will develop skills to listen with love and compassion for yourself and others.
