All levels including beginners. Wednesdays, September 18-October 23.
This course offers a virtual pilgrimage through diverse contemplative traditions and world religions with a special focus on the study of sacred texts and mindfulness practice. Regardless of background, age, or whether or not you are affiliated with a formal religious tradition, the soul longs for peace, compassion, and connection. We'll explore the challenge and opportunity of living a spiritual life in our contemporary world. Drawing on several sacred traditions, including Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, we'll examine commonality and differences in sacred teachings as we explore the timeless search for wisdom, transcendence, and sacred belonging. The course will be a blend of meditation practice, the study of ancient texts, teaching, storytelling, and vibrant discussion.
