“Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
Workshop leader Dan Hines offers an opportunity to focus on the art of asking open and honest questions and the centuries old practice of a ‘Clearness Commitee‘. (The workshop is a response to many participants in Dan’s programs who have requested this learning experience.) The program fee includes workshop materials and Saturday lunch.
“Any knowledge that doesn’t lead to new questions quickly dies out: it fails to maintain the temperature required for sustaining life.” – Wisława Szymborska
“If I’ve learned nothing else, I’ve learned this:
a question is a powerful thing, a mighty use of words.
Questions elicit answers in their likeness.
Answers mirror the questions they rise, or fall, to meet.
So while a simple question can be precisely what’s needed to drive to the heart of the matter, it’s hard to meet a simplistic question with anything but a simplistic answer.
It’s hard to transcend a combative question. But it’s hard to resist a generous question.
We all have it in us to formulate questions that invite honesty, dignity, and revelation.
There is something redemptive and life-giving about asking a better question.”
– Krista Tippett Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Art of Living
