The Watercourse Way II

The Watercourse Way II

Our Brain, Our Body, and a Life of Prayerful Engagement

An invitation to an experience of integrative spirituality.

“For Chuang Tzu, as for the Gospel, to lose one’s life is to save it, and to seek to save it for one’s own sake is to lose it. There is an affirmation of the world that is ruin and loss, there is renunciation of a world that finds and saves man in his own home, which is God’s world.”

-Thomas Merton
