The Rhythm of Virtue - Interactive Open House

12:00 pm Sunday, September 23, 2018




Anyone looking to develop positive virtues by focusing on them more throughout their regular, busy day will enjoy the smörgåsbord of methods to integrate practice found in The Rhythm of Virtue just published by Denise Flora, long time Universal Education resource contributor and facilitator.

Based on a decade of personal experience with using Universal Education principles such as the 16 Guidelines, developing materials based on these subjects, as well as an even longer experience writing poetry, playing taiji, and teaching music, Denise Flora has pulled together rhythm, poetry, chant, movement, and verse, into a something-for-everyone collection and workbook.

At the Open House from 12-2, try a fast-paced, hands-on circuit of methods to integrate virtuous thought. Play with rhythm, poetry, chant, movement, and music – designed for adults. Come back Sep 30 to celebrate the Book Launch and to the Workshop Series in October, November, and December. Subjects for the workshops will be determined based on feedback from this Open House.

Whether the rhythm of your day includes walking, biking, climbing stairs, drumming on your desk, hearing the tick of a clock, or just breathing while waiting, you can use these methods to write your own practices to keep the themes you choose, playing as your mind's internal playlist. Pair verses with the natural rhythms and motions of your day to make your whole day an opportunity for practice.
