have you heard? text

Join us as John Pustejovsky, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Emeritus, leads us through this reflective experience of shared inquiry and discussion about what we have heard. Enhance your ability to listen and engage in thoughtful conversation.

The process uses four simple rules for a discussion:
you read the text beforehand; we talk only about the text we've read; opinions are supported by something in the text; the leader may only ask questions.

Join us for a 4-part weekly reflection series,
drawing inspiration from Tricia Hersey's 'The Nap Ministry's Rest Deck: 50 Practices to Resist Grind Culture'. This captivating card deck will serve as our guide to explore mindful practices aimed at reclaiming rest as a form of collective care.

Each session lasts just 30-40 minutes, designed for your busy schedule. Whether you attend one, some, or all sessions, you'll engage in guided discussions that encourage reflection on cultivating peace within yourself and fostering community amidst life's hustle and bustle. By intentionally embracing rest with mindfulness and gratitude, we'll discover how it becomes a sacred encounter within the rhythm of our daily lives.
