We’ll be spending more or less 5 months in this hollowed place, a place we call home. A place where our desires meet with God’s desire. A place of grace.
September 24, 2015. We had a session on Embracing Transitions with Dr. Kevin Egan. This is very timely for we, tertians, are in the stage of experiencing transitions. Definitely, there is no book of instruction on how to make a successful transition for one can’t manage it but to only experience it (Bridges 2001)
Transition is the psychological and spiritual process people go through in coming to terms with change. Tertianship is more than just a period of change but an invitation to transformation. “There is a great, grave distinction between change and transformation. Change refers to adaptation, reaction, without necessarily involving any newness of being, a new creating energy flowing from the center which acts with creative power upon surrounding events. (Flora Slosson Wuellner)
Dr Egan expressed his hope for us who are in the tertianship to expereince the renewal of energy. In so doing, he also posed a challenge for us, “sometimes we need to let go to receive it back again.”
The session ended with a sharing to deepen the experience and needless to say, a sumptuous meal : burger for supper, to complete the experience
