CONSPIRE 2018: The Path of Descent is the Path of Transformation
St. Alban, Edmonds | September 21 5:30pm-9:45 pm, September 22 8:45am-4:45 pm, & September 23 1:15pm-4:45pm | $10, scholarships available
St. Albans, Seattle will be hosting a rebroadcast of the webcast with Richard Rohr and friends from the Center for Action and Contemplation.
Come and explore contemplative teachings, practices, reflection, and conversation with Richard Rohr, Barbara Holmes, Brian McLaren, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Mirabai Starr. How do we change and grow? How do we become our most whole selves, deeply connected with God and others? How do we learn to experience ourselves as interconnected so that we can truly love? The mystics of many spiritual traditions teach the path of descent—surrender, generative self-emptying, dying before you die—as the way of transformation. More than ideas or success, uncertainty, failure, relapse, suffering (personal and communal), and woundedness can be our primary teachers.
