Do you find yourself on the growing edge of Christianity seeking deeper spiritual engagement and an evolved Christian spiritual path?

Join us for a special opportunity with Rev. Paul Smith (author of “Integral Christianity” and “Is Your God Big Enough, Close Enough, and You Enough”) and Luke Healy (Integral Christian Network). Learn about integral Christianity and how it helps us grow up, wake up, and experience God with us, in us, and beyond us. Practice whole body awakening and wespace community practice. This is a hybrid event where Rev. Paul Smith will be joining us via live webcast and Luke Healy will be joining in person. This event is part retreat, part workshop, interactive, informative, and practice based. Both Paul and Luke will answer questions and lead us in spiritual practice.

“To speak of creativity is to speak of profound intimacy. It is also to speak of our connecting to the Divine in us and of our bringing the Divine back to the community. This is true whether we understand our creativity to be begetting and nourishing our children, making music, doing theater, gardening, writing, teaching, running a business, painting, constructing houses, or sharing the healing arts of medicine and therapy.”― Matthew Fox
