Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 9 — work on "Encountering the Spirit in the Flesh"

While Western tradition has sometimes thought of "spiritual" and "embodied" as contrasting terms, most today would agree that we are inescapably embodied. However it is that we are spiritual, we do it in and through our bodies. This workshop will invite participants to explore what ideas our bodies carry of spirituality and how we can use our bodies to explore widening spiritual horizons. The workshop will involve both individual exploration and some experimentation with low-key group exercises. Please wear comfortable clothes!

When: Monday, March 9, 2009 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

Where: Christian Theological Seminary, room 122
