St. Paul, MN 55104 United States

free but rsvp required.

In the Pali language of the original Buddhist texts, it meant literally “to place the heart upon.” This writing session offers an exploration of faith as something we do. How and where do we offer our hearts? And what does it mean when we do? Free but RSVP by email requested.

Free but rsvp required.

We are all, as Kahlil Gibran noted, the “sons and daughters of life longing for itself.” But our consumer culture often conflates longing and desire, as if longing could be satisfied by purchases, progress or possessions. What is the nature of longing and how do we respond to it? What does our longing point us toward? And what would happen if we let ourselves belong to our deepest longing? Free but RSVP by email requested.
