Fifteen hundred years ago, a monk named Benedict of Nursia wanted to give his followers instructions on how to live a more spiritually fulfilled life. He wrote a short book which became known as The Rule of Benedict. For fifteen hundred years, The Rule of Benedict has been the cornerstone of Benedictine spirituality and is considered one of the great classics of western spirituality.
The Rule teaches us how to find spirituality in simplicity. We need simplicity, today more than ever. We are drowning in complexity. We spend our lives supporting things we don’t need and leave ourselves too exhausted to nurture that which offers us real value.
You’re invited to join us as we look at five of the most important lessons from the Rule of Benedict on living a simpler life. These are practical steps you can take today to clear the space you need to breath, to appreciate, and to fully live.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR: Roger Sessions is a Benedictine Oblate with the World Community for Christian Mediation and the author of the book The Christian I Ching, a reinterpretation of the I Ching from a mystical Christian perspective. In his day job, he specializes in Complexity Analytics, the study of the pathology of complexity. He feels called to introduce simplicity in as many forms as possible to as many people as possible.
