Event description

Description

This 4-week series combines gentle movement with song, story, and poetry to rediscover our bodies as a profound and privileged locus where heaven and earth come together. The event is scheduled for Tuesdays, February 14, 21, and 28, and March 7, 2017, from 12:15 to 1:00 pm, in AMU 157.

Facilitators: Sr. Anne Arabome, SSS, Associate Director of Faber Center, and Ms. Kristin Kipp, Director of Employee Wellness.

Themes for the weekly reflection and movement will be drawn from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola:

Week 1: Creation: Through guided meditation, reflection, and movement, we will reflect on our lives as God’s precious creation – how the breath of life flows through us in the gift of movement and of being; how the rhythm and dance of life ceaselessly stir our spirit; and how our life blends harmoniously with the song of creation.

Week 2: Love: Through guided meditation, reflection, and movement, we will reflect on God’s love for us – how we have been cherished and appreciated by the Divine; how God’s love has enriched us and how we channel that love toward others.

Week 3: Suffering: Through guided meditation, reflection, and movement, we will name and reflect on the many faces of suffering in our personal lives and in the lives of others, especially moments when we find ourselves in loneliness and despair.

Week 4: Hope: Through guided meditation, reflection, and movement, we will reflect on how, when, and where we see seeds of hope – when we encounter those shoots of green, when joy surprises us, and when light dispels the darkness. Where did we find wind to fill our sail? What does freedom feel like? How do we turn back to the dance of life to be restored and renewed?
