Life on the Edge: Desert and Mountain Spirituality – Sharing Stories on This Side of the Coronavirus

September 12, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


An Online Retreat with Illuman Weavers Belden Lane and Joel Blunk

Men are both fascinated and frightened by wild terrain—whether it’s the challenge of a mountain/desert wilderness or the metaphorical backcountry of a coronavirus pandemic. In wild places like this we encounter what feels like the absence as well as the presence of God. But we always come back with stories to tell.

In the first part of this online gathering, Belden will share stories and teachings about the spiritual and psychological dimensions of desert/mountain experience—drawing on biblical narratives, the early Desert Fathers, and the work of James Hillman. In the second part, Joel will lead us in council, offering some of his soul-stirring music and inviting us to share our own stories of navigating the fierce landscape of the COVID-19 threat.
