The Gift of Grateful Living: A Healing Path in a Troubled World
Come to the wild and beautiful land of Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, and spend a week with other seekers exploring the value and effectiveness of The Gift of Grateful Living: A Healing Path in a Troubled World. A rhythm of solitude and community, praying and writing, moving and singing, resting and laughing offers opportunities for deep reflection, insights, sharing and spiritual growth. Enjoy a field trip to Christ in the Desert Monastery, a remote Benedictine monastery 13 miles from the ranch, set in the exquisite beauty of the Chama River Canyon. Walk the heart labyrinth at Casa del Sol, the spiritual heart of Ghost Ranch, as well as the large labyrinth beneath Kitchen Mesa on the main ranch campus. Each experience is followed by time for silent reflection, journaling, creative expression, or rest. We will be supported by poets and saints, such as Mary Oliver, Henri Nouwen, Thomas Merton, Wendell Berry and Br. David Steindl- Rast In today’s often troubling world, we can learn to live from a stance of gratitude which results in expanded sensitivity and awareness, more creative energy, and heightened compassion. Spend a week in this peaceful space, explore grateful living, share your story and hear others’, touch into your creativity, celebrate in prayerful ritual, embrace both silence and community.
