The Five Longings with Author David Richo
February 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm| $40
Renowned author, spiritual teacher and counselor David Richo will return to MDUUC on February 10 to talk about the subject of one of his recent books. Here is a description from The Five Longings: If you’ve ever had a vague sense that something’s missing from your life, congratulations: That longing for something better is a sign of being fully human, fully alive. But what’s even more wonderful, according to Dave Richo, is that when you identify and carefully examine the things you long for—like love, meaning, freedom, happiness, and growth—you not only discover deep truths about yourself, but you also find that the things you long for were never really “missing” at all. He provides enlightening advice and practices for accessing just this kind of profound self-discovery, illustrated by a wealth of examples from depth psychology, religion, and literature. Our longings in fact point to the presence of something transcendent in us, he shows. In seeking something better, we are seeking that which we already are.
Bring a bag lunch (dessert and beverages provided). Please register by February 1.
Richo, whose previous presentations have been acclaimed, will focus on Yearning and Longing which many of us are struggling within this time in which we often wish things were otherwise.
