Alone Together: Balancing Solitude and Community on the Spiritual Journey

It’s hard to imagine growing spiritually without spending time alone. It is in the quiet of our own mind and heart that many of us discover the “still, small voice” that tells us there is more to life than the busy pursuit of success or happiness as society defines it. Although it is necessary for the life of our soul, solitude alone is not sufficient. The dynamic of the spiritual life requires engagement with others. Community, whether it is with one other or many, can affirm and nurture our questing and our questioning. Our retreat will embody the balance necessary for the health of our souls as it will provide time for both quiet reflection and for conversation on matters pertinent to “the journey.”
Facilitator: Tom Stella, author of The God Instinct and A Faith Worth Believing: Finding New Life Beyond the Rules of Religion, and a frequent presenter at Montview.
