WORKSHOP: Apart from friends, family, and good work, what matters most in our lives? What values lead us to a freer, larger life, a more considered course? Together we will examine the crippling role fear management systems play in our choices, why we are called to choose ambiguity over familiarity, why the world is driven by verbs not nouns, how life is most meaningful in the face of mortality, and how genuine spirituality is a journey not an arrival. A more considered life asks more of us than may be comfortable, but we are rewarded with a more interesting story. His new book, What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life, will be available for the first time at this meeting. Together we will consider the paradoxes that we encounter in the conduct of our brief transit on this earth. Leading a more conscious life brings us to choices which either enlarge or diminish. Our time together will bring a more considered reflectivity to our daily lives.
