Looking for a great discussion?

If you like learning and discussing ideas about spirituality with other people, the Benedictine Center is offering a four-part series that may meet your needs. Called “The Great Conversations Series,” these sessions will feature a theological teacher or expert addressing spiritual issues facing the modern world.

The first will be held Thursday, October 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  It features Diane Millis, Ph.D., who will host a discussion on “What are you Learning About Wholehearted Living?” Millis is an inspirational speaker, spiritual director, teacher and author who helps groups communicate more authentically. She has a Ph.D. in family studies and teaches at Saint Catherine University in St. Paul.

Each session will include a brief reflection, discussion and summary of insights emerging from the conversation. A freewill offering will be accepted.

The remaining three conversations are as follows:

• October 19: “Paying Attention! How do I put soul back into my leadership?”

• March 15: “Virtue and living a public life”

• April 5: “How might I cool my anger and warm my sadness?”

Each group is limited to 12 participants. For more information, or to register for one or more of these conversations, go online to www.stpaulsmonastery.org and follow the Benedictine Center link, call 651-777-7251 or email benedictinecenter@stpaulsmonastery.org.
