Great Conversation: Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Benedict emphasized the vital practices of simplicity and moderation because he recognized the difficulties of aligning our everyday rhythms with our spiritual lives. Choosing simplicity and moderation in a culture of excess involves deliberate choices and intentional practices, especially when they are expressed differently for unique people, families, and communities. This conversation will explore how we center ourselves, practice gratitude, and focus our energy in meaningful ways. We will draw on insights from St. Benedict, Scripture, poets, and the wisdom we each bring into the room.
