2) It’s Not Too Late to Feed Your Spiritual Side

Glastonbury Abbey, 16 Hull Street in Hingham, is offering a weekend spiritual retreat called “Daily Life as a Spiritual Practice.” The two all day curriculum will be an exploration of Meister Eckhart’s spiritual teachings within an overall Judeo-Christian context. Participants will be invited to “let go” of achievement energy, a letting go to receive who we are on the way to fullness of being. Through the practice of meditative self-presence, participants will experience the shift from living life out on an ethos of scarcity to one of abundance. We die to new life. The weekend will be facilitated by Martin Mullins, M.Sc. and Brother Daniel, OSB. The suggested offering is $190 and includes a 2-night stay on the beautiful and serene Glastonbury Abbey grounds. Meals are also included.
