This sounds like it would be interesting to attend (put on by The Merton Institute for Contemplative Living). If you’re near Louisville, take note!
(And no, I am not trying to talk about anything but the election on this inauspicious day, though I am Catholic and of a meditative, reflective mindset. More people turning off the pundits and getting in touch with their own inner/outer reality would be a good thing all around, in my opinion.)
