There is a trusted path for recovering the life of meaning, freedom and compassion were were created for.

Jun 26 - 29

Mark Scandrette and Dani Scoville will be co facilitating the following sessions: Experiencing Personal Transformation. The issues facing our world mirror the struggles we have within ourselves. Each of us are on a journey from the false self to the true self. The teachings of Jesus invite us into a life transformed by learning to cooperate with God's healing work in us. The ancients called this process ascesis, or self-discipline, which according to the Apostle Paul, involves training in new ways of living in our minds, bodies and relationships. Mahatma Gandhi called this an "experiment in truth.” Explore how we can support each other to experience greater wholeness for the sake of our world. Invitation to Stillness. The practice contemplative prayer (or mindfulness) is a powerful tool for awakening God awareness, greater self-awareness and more conscious living.
