As a reminder, here is ABQCSL's phased approach to reopening that Rev. Amani mentioned in her video.
There are lots of opportunities to stay connected with each other and to keep on our transformational journeys during this off-campus time. This week is the time to join the new CSL-Accredited class, Self Mastery, which starts Tuesday evening.
This week is also the time to check out the Summer SpiritGroups. Attend a Connection Event and see if one (or more) of these calls to you.
An opportunity to reduce the isolation and boredom of social distancing while also growing spiritually. The group will lay out ahead of time an agenda for each meeting in the session to include proposed or impromptu discussion topics, Zoom-based watch parties of films focusing on spiritual growth, discussion of current events, books and articles.
