For this quiet day we will use Adyashanti’s latest book, The Most Important Thing: Discovering Truth at the Heart of Life as “a way to surface insights that can help us discover the most important things for ourselves.” So states poet and philosopher, Mark Nepo about this wisdom-filled book that helps us focus on the essential question “What is the most important thing in your life? Do not assume it is the first idea that pops into your mind. Discovering it may take some real investigation and some serious contemplation. It will be worth the effort and can be a turning point in whatever area of your life you apply it to.” (Adyashanti)
Please join me for a day of silence, meditation, journal writing, walking in nature, and measured discussion about the most important thing.
