March 6. Everything is Food: A Gourmet’s Guide to the Spiritual Path.

This program is about what and how we "feed" body, heart and soul for maximum benefit in supporting our spiritual aim. What "foods" are sustaining, what are strengthening, what are depleting? We will consider many types of "food" including breath, sense impressions, the company of others, challenges and setbacks. Everything is food that we can bring to the Path.
Speaker: Regina Sara Ryan. Regina is the editor of Hohm Press, a workshop leader, retreat guide, and author of The Woman Awake, Igniting the Inner Life, Praying Dangerously, Only God and other books.
