A Geography of Grace: Explore Your Inner Geography
October 17, 2020 | 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Every third Saturday, October 17 – May 15 (except December).
The cost of the series is $40 for members and $60 for non-members. Maximum of fourteen participants.
A Geography of Grace is a new adult spiritual development program which invites you to explore your inner geography, to listen for your inner teacher, and hear the wisdom of your own spirit. Just as many of us are removed from contact with the natural world through urban living or busy lives, we also live distanced from our inner nature. These two landscapes connect to, and inform, each other. The natural world desperately needs people who have reverence for it, listen to it, preserve, and restore it. With the same urgency, our inner lives need attention.
Facilitated by trained church members Diane Horne, Beth Monhollen, and Dale Skaggs, the program uses the Circle of Trust approach developed through The Center for Courage and Renewal (based on the work of Dr. Parker J. Palmer). This small group program uses poetry, stories, music, and art to map a journey of metaphor, symbol, and intuition, opening new vistas in our inner landscape.
The other theme for this program is grace. The Latin word for grace is the same as the word for gratitude: grata or gratia, which means “a given gift.” This program is meant to help us gain (or regain) contact with our best selves, with those innate gifts we hope to offer the world.
