Winter Spirituality 2018 – Deep Listening: Being a Loving and Healing Presence

Saturday, February 24, 2018

9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

8:30 a.m. check-in, coffee

“Being listened to is so close to being loved that most people cannot tell the difference.” (D. Augsburger)

Listening is an art.  Deep listening happens in the heart.  Beyond our logical minds there is a ground of knowing where we encounter Divine grace and compassion that heals and transforms us.  Come and learn practices in deep listening where our inner and outer landscapes meet. We’ll experience Centering Prayer (Christian tradition) and the secular aspects of Mindfulness Meditation in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition.

Cultivating silence, noticing and not judging our thoughts opens our hearts to receiving God’s abundant grace and mercyas we know our basic goodness.

Co-Leaders:           

Aarti Lentz Tejuja 

Director of Social Engagement, Shambhala International, creates safe spaces for young people in Chicago teaching how to live mindfully and give back to society.

Susan M. Pudelek, M.Div.

Coordinator of Interreligious Relations, Office for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, Archdiocese of Chicago, builds relationships with people of many religious traditions. Susan was the Shrine’s Director of Pilgrimage Ministry for more than 12 years.
