Spirituality and the Mindful Life

About This Event

This course offers a virtual pilgrimage through diverse contemplative traditions and world religions with a special focus on the study of sacred texts and mindfulness practice. Regardless of background, age, or whether or not you are affiliated with a formal religious tradition, the soul longs for peace, compassion, and connection. We’ll explore the challenge and opportunity of living a spiritual life in our contemporary world. Drawing on several sacred traditions, including Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, we’ll examine commonality and differences in sacred teachings as we explore the timeless search for wisdom, transcendence, and sacred belonging. The course will be a blend of meditation practice, the study of ancient texts, teaching, storytelling, and vibrant discussion.

Class Dates: Wednesdays: September 18, 25, October 2, 9, 16, and 23

Class Time: 10am-12pm

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
