START CLOSE IN
SHAPING A CREATIVE LIFE EQUAL TO THE CHALLENGE OF OUR TIMES
January 10, 17 and 24 • 10:00am Pacific Time
Last Call Invitation to Start Close In
All of us can feel the tide beginning to turn and the road beginning to open again, however slowly, regarding our possible release from the confinements of the last year. And yet all of us find ourselves still in the midst of the deep difficulties this trying year has brought.
In the midst of overwhelming circumstance, no different from our own tumultuous times, human beings have always been called to a form of radical simplification, to returning to a true foundation from which they can step into a new life: to the making of new promises and the letting go of old ones. Our New Year’s resolutions are but magnified versions of this ancient taking on and giving up. The understanding has always been that we have to give away something precious; something we previously thought was fundamental. In this giving away we come to ground in our possibilities again, possibilities that were previously hidden by our too complicated view of what needed to be done, and who we needed to be in order to do it.
Join David Whyte for Three Sundays in January to look at the phenomenon of giving up in order to go on; of finding new promises by letting go of old ones, and remembering those vows that seemed to have been made on our behalf at our birth.
We have a sense that we need to be preparing to get out on the road again, though we know that road must be taken in ways we never understood before. These three sessions are a way of packing and preparing for that journey from the inside out, ready for the perils and possibilities this new year might bring.
