About the Event
(Hybrid; taught by Matthew Lawrence)
As he heads into retirement, Canon for Spiritual Formation, Matthew Lawrence's primary intention is to play pool and tennis and cello, play with his motorcycle, play with his loved ones, and play with the Earth and Creation. Is this merely a reckless self-indulgence or is there more to it?
In this class, Matthew will draw on some popular contemplative and philosophical meditations on work, play, and craft: The Inner Game of Tennis, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and Shop Class as Soulcraft. Special guests may include a sex therapist and a Zen dharma teacher. The class will conclude with an optional retirement/Christmas party at Matthew’s favorite pool hall on December 28!
