Whether you are a person of faith seeking “Just a Closer Walk with Thee,” or an atheist looking to get in touch with your inner cookie, the Spiritual Disciplines are about relationships.
The Spiritual Disciplines encompass our incomplete yet increasing understanding of who and what makes the universe of universes work. They are symbolized throughout Ascension University by the ongoing effort to understand the whole. Within the primary spiritual disciplines we focus on the individual, the familial, and the universal. they are seen as parts of the whole in a peer to peer setting.
This disciplinary focus will begin with a time of personal discovery, progress through the assessment and development of our interpersonal relationships, and culminate with an exploration of, and possible embrace of, universal values. We will encounter challenges that stimulate our growth. Healthy challenges to our assumptions, our attitudes, our habits and our vesting contribute mightily to the development of our very souls. In this gathering we encounter provocative essays, lectures, songs, images and conversations that favor a new luminosity. We are challenged in ways that help us as we move along Eternity Road, all the while making the adjustment to Infinity.
