Healing Christianity: Thomas Merton and Mindfulness
About This Event
This experiential retreat will explore the life and writings of the monk, Thomas Merton, one of the greatest spiritual masters of the twentieth century whose timeless contemplative insight illumines a path of equanimity and wise action. His autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain, has sold over one million copies and has been translated into more than fifteen languages. He wrote over sixty other books and hundreds of poems and articles on topics ranging from Buddhism and Christian spirituality to civil rights, nonviolence, and the nuclear arms race. Through candid conversation, poetry, self-inquiry, and mindfulness practice, we’ll explore Merton’s fresh and healing vision for Christianity and inter-religious dialogue. People of any faith and those from no particular religious background are most welcome. Bring a sense of humor, a willingness to share your experience, and a desire to grow in faith, hope, and love.

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!!

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!
