Advent Retreat

This weekend course will explore the dynamic of Welcome in the context of conflict. Through groupwork, poetry, discussion and teaching, we will reflect on the following questions: How can we find a way to make space for the conflicts of our lives? How can we find a way to respond to our hostilities with hospitality? Who is allowed to welcome whom in conflict? What is the power of hospitality in a world of conflict? How can we develop spiritual practices that are not in fear of fear, or in conflict about conflict?
