IDEAL FOR: All levels
Courageous Candlelight Conversations provide a forum to explore the connection between contemplative practice and vital social issues. Engaged citizenship in which people take an active role in their communities relies upon honest dialogue and sincere listening about our common convictions and diverging viewpoints. Candlelight Conversations provide a space for true exchange where people deeply encounter one another in a spirit of authenticity and compassion. Each Candlelight Conversation will include meditation, mindful conversation, and teaching, concluding with tea and refreshments.
For our second Courageous Candlelight Conversation of 2020, we will hold space for shares and reflections on the topic of aging. Facilitated by Miranda Chapman, this gathering will feature Copper Beech Institute community member and judge Barbara Aaron. We will touch on how, as youth, we often have a sense of being immortal, and how this increasingly transforms as we enter the different stages of adulthood. Some questions that will be explored are: what does it look like for us to walk alongside our mortality at these various points along life’s journey? How does what we ascribe meaning to change through aging?
All are welcome. No registration necessary. Free-will offering.
