While traveling, one cannot possibly know in advance what lies around the next corner or over the next hill without rounding that corner or climbing that hill. At best, one might get glimmerings of detours, hairpin turns, heart-stopping beauty or a break down, so having a well-stocked traveling bag can make a huge difference.
Sometimes being prepared can turn a potential disaster into a glorious adventure. Not knowing how to change a spare tire can cause an undesirable delay. Being able to read a map and orient one’s location and destination along the road can augment a trip. Developing comfort with ambiguity always helps.
The Center for Spiritual Living Tucson is offering a yearlong series of workshops and short classes called The Journey, held on Wednesdays throughout 2015. The series is based on the idea that different tools, methods, information, skills, and even inspiration, can contribute to a safer, more pleasant life journey.
Some classes offer or reinforce life skills or spiritual practices, some develop new perspectives, some are informational and others are experiential. Subjects include the world’s religions and their texts and meditation techniques, with workshops on writing poetry, developing rituals, vision boarding and mind-mapping. Other themes for exploration include Love, Relating and Relationships, Invent Yourself, The Freedom Journey, Effective Praying and more.
Upcoming sessions include Taoism, on May 6; Michael Singer’s work The Untethered Soul, from May 13 to June 3; Invent Yourself, on June 10; and Islam, on June 17.
Location: 3895 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson. For more information, call 520-319-1042 or visit TucsonCSL.org. See ad, page 32.
