Gifts of a Scarred Soul

Who hasn’t experienced a struggle that seemed insurmountable? A brokenness of soul that seemed crushing? Each of us has stories of pain and grief, depression and despair, hopelessness and sorrow. Some of them we survived well. Some of them we didn’t.

The Mindful Life

One wonderful aspect of mindfulness is how ideally suited it is for integration into daily living. In fact, you’d almost think this ancient 2,500 year-old spiritual practice had been especially created and developed as a healing antidote for those of us living in the future-oriented, fast-paced, and digitally distracted 21st century!

If you are interested in this e-course, maybe it’s because you are hungry for more daily meaning and fulfillment. That’s where daily mindfulness practices come in. Mindfulness helps you integrate what you are already doing — even ordinary tasks — into your experience with a heightened sense of purpose, awareness, and appreciation.

“Mindful Living” will bring you emaiils on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for four weeks. They will provide you with mindful ways to start and end your day, to reduce stress, to strengthen your intentions, and much more. Here’s what the course includes:

12 detailed emails with practices, quotes, and inspirations
Selected mindfulness meditation videos and audios
A Practice Circle forum open 24/7 for sharing and receiving feedback from a worldwide community of participants and guidance from retreat leader Donald Altman.
Donald Altman is a psychotherapist, award-winning author, former Buddhist monk, and international teacher and trainer. He is known as America’s Mindfulness Coach for the way he makes mindful living accessible in daily life. He is profiled as a Living Spiritual Teacher at S&P. He believes that “it only takes a few grains of mindfulness each day to deepen enjoyment in daily life.”

From savoring ordinary things to steeping in Nature’s healing glow to changing your perspective on that difficult person in your life, this course shows you ways to be focused and fully present. Join us to see how mindfulness can change your life for the better, one moment at a time.

(4 CEHs for Chaplains available.)

Wild Goose Festival

WHAT IS THE WILD GOOSE FESTIVAL?

It’s hard to sum up in a few words. We try, when we say things like: it’s a 4-day Spirit, Justice, Music and Arts Festival. But it’s so much more than that.

Navigating Life’s Transitions

Throughout our lives we experience many transitions — passages between one social role and another as well as passages between one stage in our inner growth and the next stage that seeks to emerge. Such passages catalyze and support our growth as human beings and as contributing members of the larger communities of which we are a part.

Being thrust into a life passage, or even inviting a passage, does not automatically mean that we will grow into the possibilities of a new stage. Successful transitions require that certain dynamics be recognized, honored, and supported. Rites of passage around the world have long been designed to support the unfolding of these dynamics in people encountering significant life change.

In this four-week e-course, we will explore the dynamics of transition and the importance to our wellbeing of working with themes as they unfold in us. You will receive 12 emails on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. They include:

Pilgrimage as a Journey of the Heart

Pilgrimage is a spiritual practice for nearly every major religion of the world. For some pilgrimage means to journey to a place where holiness is apparent, or where some kind of divine and human encounter took place. Some describe the experience as a search for spiritual depth or moral significance, while others search for a path towards freedom. Some pilgrims are directed towards specific destinations, such as a dwelling place of a saint, or a holy place that evokes prayer and reflection. For some the passage is symbolic of the journey of a soul to God, and primarily an internal experience of alternative sacred geography. Others describe pilgrimage as a threshold experience that points to a new reality. Pilgrimage is so common to human experience that the practice has recently been proposed as a new Jungian archetype.
