Listening Within

Parker Palmer reminds us that “we all have an inner teacher whose guidance is more reliable than anything we can get from a doctrine, ideology, collective belief system, institution, or leader.”  Yet so often we find it hard to listen to that inner teacher, to hear the wisdom inside, to become aware of the being we are rather than the narrative the world outside wants us to believe.  So what gets in the way of listening within?  How can listening within lead us to know our inner purpose and how is that related to our outer purpose?  And why was Decartes wrong when he claimed “I think, therefore I am.”?

Our first Sunday drop-in covenant group will focus on our monthly theme of “Deep Listening.”  All are invited to participate.  Rev. Lyn Marshall will facilitate.
