Thinking doesn’t always get a good press. Richard Rohr has said that ‘I think therefore I am’ is the lowest point in our understanding of ourselves for it reduces us to one third of our left brain hemisphere. Whether you agree or not, none of us can escape our thoughts. Thinking brings depth, height and breadth of insight. God calls us to ‘come and reason together’. But, what happens when thinking keeps us from being truly present ‘to what is’? What are the reasons, the mechanisms, the traps?
This day will explore thinking as both a gateway and a barrier to spiritual growth as well as practices that will take our directees further into loving and serving God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength.
