Play, Power, and Perseverance: Wisdom Camp 2019
Afraid, sad, angry, exhausted – does this sound like you?
For those of us involved in the ‘good struggle’ for a more loving, equitable planet, political upheaval, ecological devastation, racial oppression, social disintegration, and spiritual despair seem to be clocking in at record speeds, often sapping our energy, momentum, and sense of well-being.
How can we continue working in our vital vocations — be we minister, artist, activist, teacher, parent — without losing our souls?
Is it possible to slow down and nourish ourselves and what truly sustains, even as we continue feeding others?
At Wisdom Camp, we think so…and on the morning of the Wild Goose Festival launch day, we intend to spend a day together exploring the play that gives us access to genuine power and perseverance!
Drawing on time-tested streams of contemplative wisdom — from the spirituality of Jesus, the compost of Christianity, interspiritual and trans-racial lineages of Buddhism and Quaker practice, and more — this year’s Wisdom Camp brings us water from deep wells.
Join us as we set the table for:
- Divine communion
- Genuine play
- Seeing and being seen
- Healing silence
- Resting in our bodies
- Telling better stories
Come to this one-day celebration of contemplative practice, resourcing you for the life you live the rest of the year!
