Integrating the Contemplative Journey

Integrating Flier“Integrating the Contemplative Journey”, a NEW offering for Kairos, will explore the questions: “How does my changed life, change the world? and ” What does contemplation in action actually mean?”

In a community of like-minded contemplatives, we will explore how our contemplative posture and practice shapes and informs an outward movement that extends beyond our inner experience, to our external world and the communities where we live.

In this community we will discuss, reflect, and notice how our own core values and motivations guide and influence the choices we make, and be challenged to consider how an increased awareness of these values and motivations can lead us to choose our actions differently.

This class will meet for five Saturday sessions during the 2016-2017 school year: October 8, 2016, November 5, 2016, January 7, 2017, February 4, 2017, and April 8, 2017.
