Elders study group forming

A book study group with a unique twist is forming at the Centre for Spiritual Living in Campbell River

A book study group with a unique twist is forming at the Centre for Spiritual Living in Campbell River.

The participants will meet weekly to discuss the book: Falling Upward-A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, by Richard Rohr. The only pre-requisite is that members must be over the age of 50.

The author is a well-known American Franciscan monk who has based his title on the assertion by Carl Jung that our lives are lived in two halves: the first is concerned about making a living, looking good, and solving practical problems of living; the second half is more about living a deeper and fuller life, participating at a more meaningful level.

He draws from the works of Maslow, Fromm, Jung, and poets Wordsworth and Eliott.

With Jill Brocklehurst, Spiritual Director of the Centre for Spiritual Living, as facilitator, these and topics like the hero’s/heroine’s journey, necessary suffering, stumbling, simplicity, sadness, tragedy, and brightness will be discussed, using the book as a starting point. Discussions start on Monday, April 13, 6-8 p.m. at the Centre for Spiritual Living (516 S. Dogwood St., the old Elk’s Hall).

All are welcome (over the age of 50), by donation. Books will be available for purchase. Participants are asked to have the first chapter read by the first evening.

The Centre for Spiritual Living Campbell River teaches spiritual tools to enhance personal lives, thereby making the world a better place.
