A Still Point

“The times are urgent, let us slow down.” Báyò Akómoláfé

Slowing down in the face of urgency? It’s a pretty counter-intuitive notion, isn’t it?

Don’t unsettled, uncertain and turbulent times call us to act, to respond?

And yet.

Could slowing down lead us to deeper insight, clearer thought and new approaches to the challenges we face?

A Still Point: A Saturday Circle of Trust® invites us to step back, pause, and ponder what slowing down means, what it offers and how we might face the urgency of our times with less haste and greater intention.

We’ll quiet the busyness inside and out, and seek a still point in our hearts and lives.

Images, texts and music will spark reflection and open fresh perspectives. There will be time for quiet reflection, small and large group conversation. Gentle, time-tested guidelines will support a calm, confidential, protected space. This is an opportunity to focus on what matters most to you as you navigate urgency and slowing down.

A Still Point is designed as a hybrid retreat. Registrants can participate either in-person or online.

We’ll bring the online and in-person settings together in a balanced and purposeful way. In-person, we’ll gather at the Centre for Social Innovation (Annex) in Toronto. Zoom will offer a gathering space for those attending online and allow for interactions among all participants. There will be private time away from the group and the screen for contemplation, rest and movement.

You could join us.

In-person: $30

online: $20
