Untangling a Moral Conundrum

Date: Nov. 17, 2019

Topic: Untangling a Moral Conundrum

Description: Can a politician also be a prophetic person? What can we learn from the life of a man whose personal convictions and humanitarian sensibilities were in conflict with his responsibilities, the sentiments of the people he led, and the events he found himself thrust into. Quite a lot, it turns out. Lessons and inspiration from the life of Abraham Lincoln.

Topic: Taste and See: Meeting Wisdom Sources in Direct Experience

Description: Spiritual accompaniment is the practice to listen to and witness another person and give space to their inner aliveness and life story.
