Event Details

Brush With Silence
Friday & Saturday, September 15 & 16, 9:30am-4:00pm
Facilitated by Thomas Roberts, LCSW, LMFT

The path to achieving deep and lasting harmony or balance in life can be manifested in many ways and through various forms of practice. In this session, we will look at the unique use of a ‘brush’ as a tool for meditation.
The use of brushes, ink and paper as a method of deepening the spiritual journey has been employed throughout the centuries and by numerous traditions. What has evolved is a method of bringing greater peace, balance and harmony that opens up the depth of divine presence via patient brush strokes. In the Japanese tradition, this is referred to as Shodo or The Way of the Brush.

During this two-day retreat, you will be inspired by the spiritual depth gained from this meditative practice. Through the dance of the brush, ink and paper, you will experience the subtle struggle between surrender and control, surface and depth, ego and divine. You will be invited to patiently embrace the process of letting go – giving in to the silence and flow of the divine through your hand, heart and spirit.

Along with deep meditation and spiritual breath work, you will be inspired to look honestly and deeply at your unhelpful, self-critical patterns, replacing them with a deeply rooted expression of calm, balance and silence. (This is a two-day event. Lunch and materials are included.)

$175 • Registration requested by Thursday, August 31. (After 8/31, registration is $195.)
