Spirituality in the 21st Century

Cosmic Spirit: Planetary Spirituality for All

Friday, April 27, 7–9 p.m., & Saturday, April 28, 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m.

Take an epic two-day journey into the heart of planetary spirituality with cosmic theologian and author Miriam Therese Winter and musician-of-the-earth Sara Thomsen! In this year’s Spirituality in the 21st Century conference hosted by Prairiewoods, M.T. and Sara will guide us to reflect on the dynamism of the emergent universe. Join us Friday evening, April 27, and Saturday, April 28, at St. Ludmila Catholic Church (211 21st Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids).

M.T.’s book Paradoxology: Spirituality in a Quantum Universe will provide the framework for exploring a newly emerging global consciousness and more authentic ways of living faithfully in a constantly evolving universe. And Sara’s inspired accompaniment will offer music for the soul to hold us all in rhapsodic orbit.

Miriam Therese Winter, MMS, PhD, describes herself as a metaphorical theologian with a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary. She is on the faculty of Hartford Seminary in Connecticut and is the director of the Women’s Leadership Institute and the master’s program in transformative leadership and spirituality. Committed to celebrating the liturgy of life, she promotes an awareness of the Divine rooted in the quantum reality permeating the world in which we live. She also is a celebrated liturgical musician, well known for songs like Joy is Like the Rain.

Sara Thomsen is an artist of the melody, whose music touches the soul and invites us to respond for the good of the global community. Sara’s gentle, soulful and uplifting acoustical renderings celebrate the beauty of the cosmos and call us into fuller communion with the global family.

The cost of this two-day conference is $75 and includes Saturday lunch. (After April 1, the cost is $80. To register for Friday only for $25, or Saturday only for $50, including lunch, please register by phone.) Limited lodging is available at Prairiewoods for $50 per night or $75 for a double (includes breakfast), but must be reserved by phone. (Online registration is for the event only.)

Come see how the universe is encouraging us to move beyond divisiveness to live more meaningful lives!
