  • Spiritual Enrichment: "Hiking in the Wilderness"

    December 10, 2019  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    Morcone Center, 20 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043

    Hiking in the Wilderness: A Metaphor for the Spiritual Journey
    John Sheff, PsyD

    In this session, John suggests that hiking in “wild places” can be thought of as part of one’s spiritual practice. Using examples as distant as the Grand Canyon, the Sonoran Desert, the Grand Tetons, or more locally World’s End, the Blues Hills Reservation or the Norris Reservation, John reflects on the spiritual benefits that are revealed by being present. He suggests that prior to attending, you might wish to visit one of our local “wild places.”
    A clinical psychologist practicing on the South Shore, John Sheff uses both Western and Eastern medicine thinking in the treatment of anxiety and worry.

    Morcone Center, 20 Hull St, Hingham, MA 02043

    Learning and Loving the Labyrinth
    Brother James Crowley, OSB
    Suggested Donation: $25. Please register 781-749-2155 ext. 300

    As the winter solstice takes place, come and learn to love the Labyrinth as a spiritual practice. If weather permits, we will walk the lovely outdoor Abbey Labyrinth. If the weather does not cooperate, we will stay inside and develop our knowledge with the use of finger labyrinths. Either way, you will leave having learned to love the labyrinth as part of your spiritual practices.

    Bother James Crowley, OSB, a monk at Glastonbury Abbey was one of the original builders of the Abbey Labyrinth several years ago, and he has continued to study and share his love of labyrinths with those looking to add walking mediation to their spiritual practices.
