As Christians we understand ourselves to be embodied spirits. What do our bodies teach us about transformation and the spiritual life? How do we lovingly listen to our bodies with the ear of our heart? Together we will explore how illness, aging, loss, and death can be our spiritual guides as our sacred lives unfold. The afternoon will include Scripture, contemplative prayer, stories from our own lives, and an opportunity for artistic response to questions and illuminations inspired by the afternoon experience.
