***TUESDAY – AUGUST 13TH
MORNING & AFTERNOON - MSR Scholarly Program
* MSR Scholarly Paper Sessions and MSR Symposia Sessions
***AUGS 13th -16th --- MSR RETREAT
*Registration link for the MSR RETREAT:
The Retreat The MSR Retreat is a unique opportunity for reflection, learning, and community building, specifically designed for MSR members and guests. The MSR Retreat is co-created and pluralistic. The intention is to explore practices from a variety of sacred, spiritual and psychological traditions based on the interests of participants. In 2019 we will draw on the principles and process of Appreciative Inquiry (Cooperrider & Whitney, 2008 and Open Space Technology (Owen, 2008) to construct much of our time together. We will also continue the tradition of encouraging retreat participants to contribute to the program. In the past this has generally been 30-120 minutes in which a participant shares something of their teaching and/or sacred-tradition practice(s) (i.e. yoga, meditation process, classroom activity, discussion-facilitation, singing etc.). The Rhythm of Our Time After the AOM / MSR Sessions end on Tuesday retreat participant will travel to the retreat location. Participants will be provided information to facilitate self-organizing, shared transport to the venue. The intention is to arrive in time to get checked in and share a light meal (at 6pm) before we gather at 7:30pm to begin the retreat. The daily rhythm will include time for: prayer, worship, meditation, journaling, silence, small and large group sharing, and presentations. Free time is built into the rhythm of our days.
