A 7-week telecourse in the art of slowing down, via phone and Internet. October 20 through December 8, 2013 (no class on Dec. 1).
2 p.m.-3:15 p.m. Eastern Time. (Time may change slightly depending on location of participants.)
Beneath the busyness of our daily lives flows a deep river of creativity, passion, silence, and a place of contact with ourselves and what matters to us. Although “the deep river” is a powerful source of nurturance, the fragmentation and sheer pace of life in 21st century America often buries this deeper dimension under the perpetual-motion surface of our days.
This course is about slowing down. Based on Abby’s highly acclaimed book, Finding the Deep River Within: A Woman’s Guide to Recovering Balance and Meaning in Everyday Life, it will introduce the three preliminary doorways and six core practices that can support us in allowing our own deeper currents to flow through daily life. With the help of readings, experiential exercises, discussion, creative expression, humor, and each other, we will explore ways to free ourselves from the tyranny of our “To-Do’s”, and so to rest more in our deeper selves and in the gift of life itself.
Cost: $250. Some scholarships available, and inquiries are welcome. Please contact Abby if the fee is a hardship.
Note: This is a small group telecourse, with individualized attention to help each participant meet her needs.
