Pushing Pause in Accelerated Time
Thursday, April 23rd, 1:30pm (Eastern)
Online – in the New Leaf Virtual Learning Centre
Do you feel as if someone just pushed the pause button on society and yet stepped on the accelerator at the same time? If you’re feeling frayed these days, longing for ways to process the anxiety, confusion, and uncertainty of life, please enjoy reviewing this webinar as we learned to make space to hear from God, embrace spiritual practices, and tend our souls in the middle of it all.
We are introduced to the concepts and importance of Contemplative Practice and engage in some simple spiritual practices that you can use in your personal life or offer to your community.
