How Connecting Now Can Help Us Survive the Storms of Life
With Flint Sparks
“Friendship is a tree to take shelter from the storm, to find shade from the blazing sun, to climb its branches to get a better view, and to swing from when we’re happy.” — Sir David Baird
Using the wisdom of a tree as our guide, join us for an evening exploration of how we can prepare ourselves for the twists and turns of this new year.
In our evening together, Flint will share stories of people gathering under the banyan trees after the devastating fires in Lahaina and examples within Zen Buddhism of the power of community to help us not only survive and find comfort and hope, but ultimately thrive.
Joining us from his home in Hawaii, we will shelter with Flint for an evening, gathering under the image of a large banyan tree, and leave this night soul-nourished and inspired to build and deepen our relationships in 2024. There will be time for questions, as we enjoy a special conversation with Flint. No previous experience with Buddhist teachings or practices is required.
