Event Description

Offered by Dan Wolpert, MDiv.
August 15, 2020 from 9 AM – 3 PM

Freewill offering

This unique one-day retreat will combine online teaching and discussion and individual contemplative practice done at your home. During the course of the day, you will learn about the Five Wisdom practices, spend time in prayer by yourself, and will then return to the online group for reflection, questions, and conversation. This format will allow us to be on retreat together, even as we are not physically in the same location.

The Five Wisdom Teaching describes five personality and constitutional types, each arising from a unique elemental energy. Based upon Chinese and Tibetan Five Element Theory and contemplative (mindfulness) psychology, these teachings promote contemplative practice that grounds us in our created, elemental world.

Daniel Wolpert, MDiv, a Presbyterian minister, is cofounder of the Minnesota Institute of Contemplation and Healing (MICAH). He has been a student of the spiritual life since age 21 and has taught in the fields of psychology and spiritual formation. Dan provides counseling and spiritual direction. He is the author of four books: Leading a Life with God: the Practice of Spiritual Leadership, Creating a Life with God: the Call of Ancient Prayer Practices, co-author of Meeting God in Virtual Reality, and most recently, The Collapse of the Three Story Universe: Christianity in an Age of Science.
