SAVORING

This is one of a three-part series which introduces three different time-honored spiritual practices in the contemplative tradition.  Finding a rhythm of contemplative practices helps us open more fully to God, encouraging receptivity to God’s loving invitations in ways congruent with our personal desires.  With hopes of this being a regular occurrence at Rolling Ridge (once in Spring and Fall), this practice-based series offers gracious guidance in each of the featured spiritual practices, inspiring conversations within shared learning, and meaning-filled reflections all in the company of curious others.  Whether the featured practices are brand new to us or we are well-seasoned with them, we look forward to discovering together the gifts of these rhythms.

The three contemplative spiritual practices for Spring 2021 are:
•    Silence/solitude (May 4)
•    Lectio Divina and its variations (May 11)
•    Savoring (May 18)

When:  Three Tuesdays (May 4, 11 and 18) from 7 to 9 p.m. (eastern)
Where:  Online, Zoom link available upon registration
Registration:  $30 each session or $75 for the entire series.  Registrations for each session close the day before.
Facilitator:  John Kiemele, PhD., (North Hampton, NH)
