Cosmology & Grace
Saturday, January 12, 2019, 9:30-3:30
with Ret. Bishop Dave Mullen

Is your God too small? Our images of God are deeply related to our cosmology or way of thinking about the vast mystery of the universe. You have a cosmology, but have you really explored it and how it shapes... everything? Join us as we explore how science and faith are partners in this vital undertaking, and deepen us into the experience of Grace.

with Carol Mathew-Rogers

Based in the SoulCollage program, this easy to learn and addictive art form is a tremendous way to give voice to the experiences and musings that so often go unspoken.  We will work in silence to support creativity.  Positive sharing will conclude each gathering.  Advance registration requested.

Conscious Living in the Last Third with Cathy Cook
Eight Thursday evenings, 6:30—8:30

April 4-May 23, 2019 at Bread of Life

The years around age 50 present genuine choices for life as well as real challenges. A consciously chosen vision of aging gives meaning and allows us to engage these years “fully awake and truly alive.” This 8 session series is designed for those 50-65 wanting to expore what their vision might be.

  
 
 
OUR DIALOGUE OFFERINGS
 
Dialogue is a practice for our time, a time of growing complexity and perplexity. Rather than pulling back into silos and surrounding ourselves with the like-minded, we intentionally seek a creative common ground that yields more than "You see it your way and I see it mine."

Our basic workshop series focuses on 
core components of practice like Awareness, Compassion, Creative Freedom and Interdependence. To see the calendar of offerings and to register for any of our sessions, please click here to visit our DynamicDialogue website.
 
 
 
   
 OUR REGISTRATION POLICY
 
To honor the commitment of registrants and presenters we have a two-week registration deadline for all events unless otherwise noted. If the minimum number of registrants is not reached two weeks prior to an event, Bread of Life reserves the right to cancel the event. For events cancelled by Bread of Life, 100% of monies paid by registrant will be refunded.

You may cancel your registration for an event by its registration deadline and be refunded all but a 10% processing fee or $5 minimum. For cancellations after the registration deadline we regret we cannot offer refunds as the monies are already committed.
Retreats as well as our long-term Dialogue and Spiritual Formation programs have their own registration and refund policies. Please inquire.
