St. Peter's to host one-day workshop

A one-day experimental workshop "Touching the Divine," featuring Dr. Wayne Muller will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 17 at the Plaza Hotel Conference Center.


In addition to the workshop, Muller will give an introductory lecture from 7-8:30 p.m. Friday at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, at the corner of Division and West Telegraph streets. There is no charge for the Friday lecture.


An inspirational author, Muller's workshop offers spiritual renewal and spiritual reconnection for those who have lost touch with the sacred in their personal life; feel a need for more meaning or more beauty in their life; looking for simple practices that will renew and refresh their life, or are seeking peace in themselves and for the world in troubled times.


"Within each of us there is a reservoir of divine wisdom, a seed of universal truth waiting to be discovered," Muller said.


"Every spiritual tradition has identified a direct personal connection to all that is sacred, and called it such names as the Kingdom of God, the Inner Light, the Buddha Nature, the Goddess within."


In the great tradition of classical spiritual training, Muller will guide participants through a "circle of contemplations" - meditations and reflections to help each person find their true nature, cultivate loving kindness, and live in simplicity and humility.


He will encourage all to go deep into their interior life and explore their sense of what matters and what doesn't. He helps to expand personal connection with the divine.


The members of St. Peter's Episcopal Church are excited to bring best-selling author Muller to Carson City as a part of their fourth annual Lecture Series. The Saturday experiential workshop, Touching the Divine, will focus on engaged spirituality and spiritual formation.

Pre-registration is advised as seating is limited. Registration fee is $110, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. The workshop will be held at the Plaza Hotel Conference Center, 211 E. 9th St.


Muller is a therapist, ordained minister and a wise and poetic writer. He is the author of, "Learning to Pray: How We Find Heaven on Earth," his latest of several books.


His focus is to help each person find the spiritual grace, courage and wisdom that is born of the challenges of their lives. Muller is the founder and president of Bread for the Journey and the founder of The Institute for Engaged Spirituality; in addition, he is a Senior Scholar at the Fetzer Institute and a member of the Extended Faculty with the Institute of Noetic Sciences; and he regularly teaches at such spiritual retreat centers as the Kripalu Center in Western Massachusetts, and the Omega Institute in New York.


On March 18, Muller will preach at the 10 a.m. contemporary service at St. Peter's Episcopal Church. The public is welcome to attend.
