ELIZABETHTON — The workshop “Original Blessing: Pathways to Inner Peace” will be held May 21 from 6:30-9 p.m. and continue May 22 from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 119 W. F St.

The workshop is designed to enhance individual spiritual experiences by exploring various pathways to inner peace from ancient and modern traditions.

According to a news release from the church, “Original Blessing” offers a post-modern understanding of divine mystery appropriate for today’s world. Based on the work of Matthew Fox, the workshop offers an alternative to our culture’s traditional relationship with God. This workshop will offer a variety of spiritual practices, including meditation, chanting, body prayer, art, singing and more.

The May 22 workshop will include a potluck for participants. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch as well as a dish to share for that evening. Light snacks will be provided.

Cost of the workshop is $40 per person.

To register by phone, call 543-7737. To register online, visit the Original Blessing page.

This is going to be a great weekend. Hope to see you!

  2. Oh, I guess it is. I was thinking of the early registration, but that ended Friday. Ah well.
