We're awakening spiritually, yet find ourselves overwhelmed and frustrated by the intense time pressure which surrounds us. The speedy electronic devices that mediate much of
our experience leave us feeling wired and forever behind. Awash in a tidal wave of information, our
expectations rise with the flood. Although we're tempted to stay later, do more and move faster,the message of spiritual awakening doesn't necessarily hold that more + faster = better. This retreat day offers insights, practices, and hands-on techniques to live an authentic spiritual life in the midst of time pressure.
We'll dig down to root issues of Attention, Boundaries, and Choices "the ABCs" of this sustainable
way of engaging with life. The path isn't easy; we're called to make real changes, to witness the
truth of things as they are, and to bear some loss. Through group and solo exercises, writing, ritual, and hands-on practice, we'll experience ways to live a life that's grounded in reality yet open to possibility.
