May 11th: The Sonic Trilogy of Love: The Sound of God
Making a joyful noise, we'll explore together the sound of God through extended chanting of the Hindu Gayatri in Sanskrit, known as the Mother of all mantras, and Jesus Prayer in Old Slavonic from the Eastern Orthodox tradition. In the silence that follows, may we hear what we have known not. Handouts will be provided to all who've registered by the day before the workshop.

May 18th: The Somatic Trilogy of Love: The Body of God
To explore the body as the temple of God, I'll guide you in simple movements adopted from some of our favorite circle dances. No dance experience necessary or a large space needed. Here we'll combine both the sound and body in our prayer and, in the silence that follows, stand still in the wonder of God.

May 25th: The Spirit Trilogy of Love: The Essence of God
It is said that all things have a song—if we can hear it. I'll guide you on a journey to what is known as the Middle World in Shamanic practice, the spirit side of our beloved creation here in which we all live. You'll learn how to hear the song, the voice, of the stones, trees, and dragonflies. And, upon returning, you'll have experienced, for yourself, your oneness with all things.

Fee: By donation to one of the charitable organizations on my website, Stephanie Rutt, Interfaith Spiritual Practices, and/or to the Tree of Life Interfaith Temple, Tree of Life Interfaith Temple

Zen Play (Making Your Life Into A Zen Koan)
Instructor: Dr Brenda Shoshanna
Meetings: 1 Thursday Meeting
Date: May 20th, 2021
Time: 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. EST
Format: Live Online
Audience: Clergy, Caretakers
Description: Life Is Not A Problem To Solve, But A Wonderful Adventure To Enjoy

In this workshop, we turn our life problem into a Zen Koan, and discover an entirely new way of engaging with it.

Like koans, life presents inscrutable challenges that are impossible to figure out. They cannot be solved rationally, and yet a response must be made. In the workshop we turn our koans, (problems) into little plays and act out each role in it. As we stop trying to figure things out, rejecting certain parts, or trying to control the outcome, we no longer twist ourselves into knots. Instead, things become enjoyable as we experience the situation from every point of view. Not only do new possibilities then arise by themselves, but conflict and struggle melt away. And we become able to enjoy whatever life brings.
Goals: A brand new way of engaging with our problems which is life giving, enjoyable and opens the door to new possibilities an entirely new vistas in our lives.
Other: Koans are such enjoyable and powerful medicine, they must not be ignored. These ancient questions from Zen practice hold a key to transforming suffering and seeing life with new eyes.
Fee: $40.00 (suggested amount, pay what you choose)
