About the event
What do historical and contemporary contemplative experts say about how contemplation should be done? How can we take their teachings to reimagine and reinvigorate our own spiritual practices and paths? By exploring work by well-known contemplatives such as Anonymous of the Cloud of Unknowing, the Rev. Dr. Barbara Holmes, Brother Lawrence, the Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman, and more, we will interrogate the tradition with the purpose of deepening and personalizing our own practice, both individually and collectively, with a heart for becoming more self- and others- compassionate.
Scholarships are available. Please contact Joanna Brunson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
This event is co-sponsored by Contemplative Outreach Atlanta and Contemplative Outreach Chicago.
