Register for Wild Edges: Crossing the Threshold Into A Sacred World:
Sunday, August 12th, 2018 at Seward Park, in Seattle WA
We have been created with astonishing resources, “a hidden wholeness,” deep in our own wildly imaginative depths, capable of entering into conversation and communion with the whole assembly of wild creation. Jesus spoke often of this wild terrain as, “treasure hidden in the field.”
Through nature-based practices that draw upon the wisdom of sacred narratives and older traditions, we will cultivate a deeper connection with nature and our own wild wholeness. Take a step across the threshold toward a culturally creative vision for life. Renew your sense of hope and courage to face our current spiritual and ecological crises together, rooted in kinship and community with one another, the wild earth, and the great mystery we call God.
Our time together will include liturgical ceremony, meditation practices, creative responses, and a group potluck!
Please bring: a cushion, pad, crazy creek chair, or lightweight camping chair; water bottle; journal/pen; emergency whistle; wear weather-smart layers and closed toe shoes; and an item to share for a potluck picnic lunch.
