Eremos Summer Interlude Series 2022

Join us for our six free 60-minute programs.

Step away from your daily routine to experience a contemplative exploration of our relationship with this sacred planet we call home. “Time in nature” is often the number one way people de-stress and feel closer to God. 

Join us for as many of the sessions you can this summer, as each facilitator explores a different way to connect with the wisdom and healing we can receive when out in nature, enjoying earth’s bounty in our meals, or contemplating how to support Mother Earth now.

Kai Siedenburg on Cultivating a Sacred and Healing Connection with the Earth

What allows us to experience the sacred in nature?  How can we cultivate a deep, healing relationship with the natural world that supports and sustains both us and the Earth?  This peaceful and nourishing program will weave together guided meditation, contemplation, poetry, and sharing as we explore these themes together.

Karen Cotton on Experiencing Thin Places

What is a “thin place”? It’s often described as a location where the boundary (or veil) between heaven and earth seems “thinner” than in other places. Have you ever visited a site, especially in nature, where you just felt more “in touch” with the Divine? How did that affect you? Karen will share some thin place experiences she has had, and we’ll take a little “tour” of thin places others have discovered.

Following careers in business, education, and as a volunteer for organizations working to end homelessness and hunger, Karen Cotton earned the Master of Divinity degree from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. She enjoys facilitating study groups, listening to her partner play bluegrass music, and playing with her grandchildren. Going on a pilgrimage to the island of Iona off the west coast of Scotland remains a bucket list item for her.
