Common Theme of the Talks
A series of informal gatherings will explore how spiritual insights can enhance our understanding of ourselves. The main thread of these meetings is weaving together spiritual and psychological wisdom. We often face anxiety, disconnection, anger and hopeless in our lives; we also experience the joy of closeness with another person, humble service, curiosity and creativity. Both spirituality and psychology address these issues, but their contributions are not always integrated. Each evening’s topic will integrate a specific spiritual teaching with concepts and wisdom from psychology. The goal is to enrich our approach to both the difficulties and joys of life.

 

 

 

A Warm Welcome to All: People from all religious traditions are welcome at these meetings. Wisdom from all traditions will be included as appropriate to the topic.

Format: The evenings will include a talk; a time for discussion and sharing; and a devotional practice. Light refreshments will be provided.

Cost: A free will offering of $15/evening is suggested but, if you are interested, please come regardless. All offerings go to support the programs of the Jesus House.
