Today most of us are caught up in noisy, disorienting life experiences from many directions.  Such experiences can unsettle what’s usually settled, deafen us to deeper life, and lock us into isolating survival mode.

But what if “survive” could shift into “thrive”?

What if our inner formation could sharpen our listening and unlock life’s fullness?

What if our lives could be reconnected and nourished through authentic spiritual companionship?

What difference could such a life make today?  This is what our upcoming course called “Way of the Heart” is all about.  “Way of the Heart” offers the opportunity to discover sustaining resources and fortifying experiences with God/the Divine and others.  “Way of the Heart” introduces generous listening and spiritual companionship as foundations for vibrant, life-long spiritual transformation.  “Way of the Heart” seeks to nurture wholeness and renewed purpose for a thriving spiritual journey.

“Way of the Heart” is a 5-month experiential learning cohort offering a rhythm of large and small group interactions that encourage participants to live into the fullness of life by awakening to God’s loving presence, by stretching through time-tested spiritual practices, and by considering unique Love-based opportunities to serve.

Led by a team of facilitators – John Kiemele, Janet Kessenich, and Henry Schoenfield – this experience includes:

  • Five MAIN TOPICS: Trusting the Way of the Heart, Expanding Awareness, Becoming Whole, Listening Generously, Envisioning Contemplative Living
  • Five ONLINE Saturday retreats from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (with 90-minute lunch) meeting on January 9, February 6, March 13, April 10, May 8
