    Arts Lunch: In the Tradition of…

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    2020.09.29

    This week we will write poetry “in the tradition of” other poets. While the works of a few poets have already been selected, feel free to bring a sample of your favorite poet to share and inspire us! We’ll discuss what makes a poet’s voice distinctive and how we might develop our own writing voices. No previous experience or interest in poetry necessary.

    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    2020.09.30
    All are invited to a shared Contemplative Gathering every Wednesday morning to gather together in silence and sit in communal contemplation. This is an opportunity to find grounding in the moment, and to share in that grounding energy with similarly self-directed explorers. The last ten minutes of the session are devoted to sharing aloud prayers that have been submitted during the week.
    If you have anyone in your heart for whom you would like to request a prayer, please use this form before 7 p.m. on the Tuesday before the session to submit your request. Prayer requests will be accepted on a first-requested, first-offered basis until capacity (still being determined) is met for our available time. Please be brief in the wording of your requests. Please contact Scott Campbell for more information.

    Virtual Artist Talk by Benedict Scheur

    7:00 PM
    2020.10.01

    Benedict Scheuer is an interdisciplinary artist who views gardening and nature as the spiritual center of his practice. His work spans drawing, painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance, singing, and textiles. He values a non-prescriptive approach to engaging with his work, allowing color, texture, shapes, and narrative to engage with each viewer uniquely. Death, Love, Connection, Mindfulness, and Cyclicality are often warmly encountered.

    Benedict recently received his MFA in visual art from the Ohio State University and holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Yale University.
