Why does Spirituality matter? What is Spirituality? What is the relationship between Spirituality and traditional religion? Join Lisa Bonner as she dives in and address these as well as your own personal questions. We will begin with a short presentation followed by small group discussion. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences with each other and to see how their experiences connect with the ideas presented. Several types of spiritual practice will be discussed and previewed.
Lisa Bonner has been leading educational opportunities and Spiritual Practice Groups for over 20 years. She understands Spirituality to be a broad concept that can include a variety of perspectives and is, therefore, larger than a particular religion. It is a universal human experience involving a sense of connection to something beyond ourselves, grows through meaningful relationships, and includes a search for meaning and purpose in life. Lisa is an active member of the Episcopal church and a member of the Oriental Order of the West, a group devoted to a contemplative wisdom path. She has been trained by the Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault to lead Wisdom Schools and has led such schools at Kanuga Conference Center in North Carolina. She is a well known facilitator of groups at the Hines Center, most recently leading the ongoing Wisdom book study group.
