An invitation to an experience of integrative spirituality.
Building upon a foundation of two initial retreats in 2015 that brought together 27 participants from across North America (Washington State, Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan, New Mexico and Iowa), this year’s retreat will be offered in the context of monastic communities in rural settings.
This retreat offers training in mindfulness practices focusing on gifts from Christian and Buddhist spiritual traditions. Instruction in Qi Gong, a gentle mind/body exercise first developed by Chinese monks in the 8th Century, will be offered each morning. Opportunities to learn one of two simplified Tai Chi Chuan forms (Tai Chi Ball or Yang 10 Form) will be made available during the retreat.
Readings from Mary Oliver, Chuang Tzu, Thomas Merton, William Johnston, and Thich Nhat Hanh will frame informal group small group discussions. Participants will be invited, if interested, to experience a series of “Clearing Circles” (a Quaker tradition) that assists individuals processing vocational and personal life transitions.
