Event:EXPLORING SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES: THE SEARCH FOR A LOVING HIGHER POWER
Date:May 5th, 2019.
Time:9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Category/Categories:Spiritual Enrichment

Sunday

Throughout recorded history people with a variety of faith traditions, or without, have reported having spiritual experiences; such as hearing, seeing, being inspired by, or feeling the presence of a higher power.  In this workshop we will explore a variety of spiritual experiences both in past and modern times. The experience of mystics such as the canonized Teresa of Avila, the origins of A Course in Miracles, the “white light” experience of Bill Wilson who co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous, and accounts from everyday people will be shared.

We will explore how people both define and attempt to connect to spirituality, and the barriers to connecting with a loving Higher Power. We will offer some of the ways people use to develop a conscious contact to spirituality.  Participants will be invited to share their experiences and perspectives on developing a spiritual connection in an open, accepting and non-judgmental space.

This retreat will include lecture, discussion, small group and individual work, meditation and reflection time. $40 fee includes lunch.

We cannot create knowledge without acting. The focus of this action is (a) to transform the world, (b) to establish interdependent relationships with human beings, with the cosmos and with God.
