Our Inner and Outer Belonging:
Where is our sense of belonging? How do we feel included? Excluded? And how do we include or exclude others?
Led by our Guest Speaker
This seminar gives us an opportunity to explore individually and together what belonging means to us, and how it may enable us to express our fullness in the world. We will also consider how in our spiritual lives we manage a balance between belonging and longing. How we balance our need for familiarity and commonality with our yearning to stretch out to the unknown.

Balancing an active life with a pull towards contemplation is a continuing and fruitful challenge. As she writes, “Life in the world is about a series of balances: of the life within and the outside world; inner experience and outward witness, plenitude and the void”.
