Practicing Spirituality at Home

Led by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

Practicing Spirituality at Home

This version of "Practicing Spirituality at Home" run as a current e-course in June-July 2013, To take this course on-demand, subscribe to this e-course.

"I want to remind myself and others that our homes can become sacred spaces, filled with life and meaning," Gunilla Norris writes in Sharing Silence. "We do not need cathedrals to remind ourselves to experience the sacred."

She is right. Think of all the time we spend in the different areas of our homes or apartments: the kitchen, dining room, living room, bathrooms, bedrooms, basement, closets, and elsewhere. Now consider our everyday activities there: eating, dressing, bathing, sleeping, crafts, games, hobbies. These all have spiritual meaning, and they can become a workshop for the spirit if approached with respect, creativity, and imagination. We may think of chores as a bore but we can reframe such things as cleaning and taking out the trash as opportunities to do our share in mending the world.

This popular e-course in our "Practicing Spirituality" series consists of 40 daily emails. It offers practices, rituals, reminders, and prayers to help you bring more focus and intentionality to the ordinary things you do at home. We will share some of the attitudes and actions recommended by our favorite writers on this subject, including Sue Bender, Brenda Peterson, Donna Schaper, Deng Ming-Dao, Brian Doyle, Drew Leder, Henri Nouwen, and many others.

You'll receive a daily with a brief quotation and a related practice suggestion. Then you will be invited to come to the Practice Circle (an online forum open 24/7 for your posts) to share your responses to the readings and your experiences with the practices. Consider the Practice Circle as a laboratory where you and others will discuss what works to bring more spirituality into your home and even what doesn't work for you.

Summertime seems to us to be an especially good time to practice spirituality at home. Although this e-course has been in Spirituality & Practice's on-demand system for several years, we have never run it with a Practice Circle for community sharing. Join us and discover how what you are already doing at home can be opportunities for deeper experiences of the sacred.
