Description

An introduction to practices surrounding the Celtic concept of Thin Places where the spiritual and physical planes come to kiss. How do we remove the veil that keeps God hidden? Having felt special connections with God throughout the world, it wasn’t until Bethany, the instructor, visited Northern Ireland that she discovered these sweet spots were called Thin Places and they were created by special events and persistent believers. The purpose of this class is to increase understanding of Thin Places and engage in practices to further cultivate them. This course explores the following practices: generosity, breathing and meditation, Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading), and, especially, spiritual play – finding joy.
