Spirituality in the 21st Century: Weaving a New Story of Meaning

April 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - April 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Spirituality in the 21st Century: Weaving a New Story of Meaning
Friday, April 28, 7–9 p.m., & Saturday, April 29, 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

(in person at Wanatee Park’s Prairie Oak Lodge in Marion, Iowa, and online via Zoom)

Please welcome esteemed author and facilitator Jeremy Lent! Jeremy is the author of The Patterning Instinct, A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning and The Web of Meaning, Integrating Science and Traditional Wisdom to Find Our Place in the Universe (www.jeremylent.com). It is a delight and a great gift for Prairiewoods that he will be joining us LIVE and in person next spring, along with our favorite musician-of-Earth, Sara Thomsen (www.sarathomsen.com).

Jeremy is well known for his eclectic approach to the integration of science and holistic spirituality, and he is also quite adept at presenting embodied spiritual wisdom streams across many traditions. His arc of presentation for the weekend will be a brief introduction on Friday evening on how we construct our worldviews. On Saturday morning, he will explore with us the implications of a worldview of deep interconnectedness, followed by embodied practices based on Liology (https://www.jeremylent.com/liology.html), an integrated, embodied framework for well-being and spiritual groundedness. On Saturday afternoon, he will introduce us to the inspiring vision of, and pathways to, a life-affirming “Ecological Civilization.” Sara’s soulful music will be woven throughout, moving us all into sacred, shared “We” space, where our imagination and dreams will meet the world’s great needs. We are the ones we’ve been anticipating!

Please join us for what promises to be an inspiring, soul-transforming event!
