Last weekend, I lead a residential wellbeing retreat at the Dan Anderson Renewal Center on the Center City, Minn., campus of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. We examined the origin and nature of suffering, and some potential solutions.
We used David Foster Wallace’s This Is Water as our core text. Here are my PowerPoints that explore some related ideas:
- Practical Solutions
- Philosophical Solutions
- Acceptance-Based Solutions
- Transcendent Solutions
Many thanks to Paul Anderson for inviting me to lead the retreat. And a huge thanks to Peg Schroeder for assistance with planning and onsite support.
Based on positive evaluations, it seems likely that we will offer the retreat again to all comers (not just health professionals). ✸
