From Absence to Fullness: A Guided Group Meditation Through the Poetry of T.S. Eliot
with Eugene K. Garber and Evan Craig Reardon.
Join us on a spiritual journey through a close reading of Eliot’s poems. This is not a lecture-driven group, but a discussion-based one. We will read and respond to the poems, and then listen to and respond to each other. Mutual commitment and the beauty of the Cathedral will be the medium for exploring the poems and for our personal growth.
In the tradition of spiritual journey found in the Gospels and in the writings of mystics, we will move from darkness to light by beginning with “The Hollow Men”, “Ash-Wednesday”, and “Choruses from ‘The Rock’” before we enter into Eliot’s highest achievement of spiritual realization, the “Four Quartets.”
We welcome seekers of any faith, as well as those still seeking a basis for spiritual commitment. Our goal is to discover new ways for thinking about the role of the spiritual in life, and for realizing our vision as we move deeper into it.
