Life as we know it is changing rapidly and dramatically. In the relentless busyness of modern life, we have lost the rhythm between stillness and activity.

Who doesn't need some direction?

Has your life felt mechanical, monotonous or empty? Wondering if this is all there is? Have you been trying various forms of self-improvement but haven't noticed any lasting progress?  Dominican Center at Marywood is offering an eight-session program facilitated by board-certified psychotherapist and spiritual director Mark Walstrom.

Here's the Program

A Way: Out, Through, and Into meets weekly on eight consecutive Tuesday-evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (September 24-November 12, 2013). This is a psycho-spiritual program that offers participants a simple, yet life-changing, process for moving out of limiting, painful ways of living and into more natural, authentic, transparent, and enlivening ways of being.  The course draws on the inspiration and guidance of some contemporary sages who know this path intimately (Thomas Merton, Richard Rohr, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Mark Nepo).  Through integrating spirituality with the social sciences we open up to a whole new way of being where we discover our deepest callings and true gifts.
