Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation
February 23, 2014 - February 28, 2014
Are you yearning for a place to nourish your spiritual life? Do you seek a spirituality deeply rooted in the Christian faith and tradition, yet open and free? The Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation may be for you. Held biennially in the PNW Conference, Academy for Spiritual Formation is a program of the Upper Room. It is an ecumenical experience of spiritual learning and practice that includes faculty presentations, times of silence and solitude, group sharing and meaningful worship.
The theme for the upcoming Five Day Academy is “Ancient Wisdom, Earth Wisdom.” We live in a world of vast knowledge, but sometimes wisdom is in short supply. As Christians seeking divine guidance for our lives, we can have confidence that it may be found in the ancient wisdom texts of our tradition as well as the most ancient source of all-God’s created world. Join us as we journey with wise teachers through the wisdom scriptures and into the realm of creation spirituality.
Our faculty presenters this year are: Rabbi Rami Shapiro and Dr. Alexandra Kovats. Both are experts in their respective fields. Rabbi Shapiro will lead us in the study of Ancient Wisdom, using scriptures from the Hebrew Bible. Website for Shapiro Dr. Kovats will draw from her knowledge of ecological and creation spirituality.
