Finding Fullness Through Simplicity

December 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Contemplative Enrichment Day with Mark Kutolowski

This day is an opportunity to rediscover simplicity of life as a path to finding fullness and contentment in God. Drawing from his long experience living in an off-grid intentional community, Mark will invite us into an audit of three fundamental areas of human life: our relationships with time and activity, possessions and space, and word and technology. In each, we will seek practical ways to empty out, to grow in simplicity, and to make room for God to be born anew in our midst.

This program will be offered both in-person and online via Zoom. Information on how to access the program on Zoom will be sent to participants in advance.

This program will include a morning and an afternoon session of Centering Prayer.

Mark Kutolowski is the co-director of Metanoia of Vermont, a lay contemplative community where residents and guests seek to follow the Way of Christ through work, prayer, and study in relationship with the land. Mark is an Oblate of Saint Benedict and a Centering Prayer teacher and has spent the past 25 years exploring the intersection of Christian faith, embodiment, and relationship with the natural world.
