Taking Heart in a Dark Time: An Interfaith Retreat of Renewal

November 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

It’s so easy to be discouraged by the heartbreak of the world… And yet our own capacity to be present to the many blessings of our lives and our immense power to live in compassion and ­loving ­relationship are key to our experience of joy and fearlessness. Rather than facing the unknown with apprehension, we can embrace even difficult times with love and a sense of infinite possibility.

The wellsprings of our spiritual ancestors are rich nourishment for the broken heart. So many of us feel depleted from the news of our stressed world — yet all of us are invited to drink from the sweet ­waters of the many spiritual traditions which offer encouragement, blessing — and true hope.

Join interspiritual teachers Mirabai Starr and David ­Wallace for a weekend of true “soul food.” Using poetry, chant, silence, journaling and ­spacious contemplation, ­we will spend these ­autumn days in various practices from the many wisdom traditions to cultivate a sense of connection and community — to ourselves, to one ­another, and to the Beloved.
