“Paths of Peace”
A workshop with Rev. Maggy Whitehouse
Cost: A donation
Paths of Peace
Led by Rev. Maggy Whitehouse
This world is addicted to dualistic thinking, where everything is separated into opposites, such as good and bad, life and death. In the West, we even believe that this is what it means to be educated—to be very good at dualistic thinking. But, both Jesus and Buddha would call that judgmental thinking (Matthew 7:1-5), and they warn us against it.
Dualistic thinking is the realm of the ego. It is where we choose or prefer one side and then call the other side of the equation false, wrong, heresy, or untrue. The dualistic mind forbids the dark side, the mysterious, the paradoxical. This is what we experience in much of religion and politics and even every day conversation. In Paths of Peace, we will learn the power of surrender to the moment—of making peace in the NOW—and how to understand that all is “imperfectly perfect.” Once we are there, the world swoons with joy at our feet, problems can unravel themselves and it is far easier to move forward in Grace.
Through guidance, discussion, practical exercises and guided meditation, we will follow the paths of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life to re-weave our understanding of all the great teachings of love, surrender and compassion. This to help us see them as empowerment, not weakness, helping us to stand taller, stronger and wiser; to become a light in a world of troubles.
As the beautiful teacher, Anne Lamott wrote,
“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” This is the workshop that reveals your inner light that is of service to the World.
