The Art, Science and Spirituality of Letting Go

Event Details

Jesus’ injunction to Mary Magdalene in the Garden of Resurrection on the first Easter morning, “Do not cling,” is a profound invitation to each of us. As we navigate through the ups and downs of everyday life, we face various challenges of change and loss. The human tendency to cling to what was, inevitably binds us in sadness and bitterness. In developing a discipline of ‘letting go,’ however, we learn to live in deeper freedom, love, and peace of mind. We invite you to join this us for this weekend sojourn to explore this core aspect of our human journey.  

In addition to input session, there will be opportunities for gentle yoga, meditation, ritual, prayer, creativity, reflection, conversation and celebration.

God asks only that you get out of God’s way and let God be God in you.

— Meister Eckhart, Sermon on 1 John —
