This first circle of participants will number no more than 8, and will be selected by the middle of October 2021. To apply, fill out the form below.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY SEPTEMBER 30, 2021.
We ask you to limit your answers to the number of words noted. (Shorter is good, too!) It may work best to answer these questions in a separate document where you can keep track of the word count, and then paste your answers in.
This is the stated intent of Ami de l’âme:
Ami de l’âme is a school of formation, designed to help participants recognize and grow into the life of Christ that is already running in, through and among us. It is also a school of learning, teaching participants the skills needed to listen to and engage others in depth conversations. We believe that it is possible to facilitate this growth and learning by consciously:
• Committing to contemplative practice, contemplative study, contemplative community and contemplative service;
• Assuming personal responsibility for building and embracing a community of support;
• Learning to listen from the heart and respond from wisdom; • Growing in intellectual curiosity and allowing the expansion of heart capacity;
• Pursuing religious depth while learning secular fluidity.
Formation will fall into four broad categories: practice, study, community and service. While we will take each of these areas in turn for study and discussion, each member of the group will decide on a personal rule of life at the beginning of our time together, so that we can support each other to live into conscious Christianity.
