Reflections on Death

The year 2023 brought us face to face with the Becoming (el devenir). So many of our close spiritual companions passed on, including our beloved Sr Jorge. These are reflections on this experience as lived by the community of Yorktown.

How do we generate Interdependence in our daily life and in Cafh?

How do we generate Interdependence in our daily life and in Cafh?

This work focuses on a few salient points from this year’s teachings. The presentation includes quotes from Annual Mission, Messages, Addresses and Courses, inspiring texts, questions and a worksheet that can be used during meditation or as an activity to assist in unfolding. The compilation of the slides flows naturally, showing the interconnection between the teachings.

Reflections on Meditation and the Method

Reflections on Meditation and the Method

The members make their personal contributions on one of two options: (a) Meditation practices and (b) specific chapters from the Method. The work highlights the relevance of Meditation to keep us focused on our spiritual path, and offers examples Meditation types and Themes, illustrated with inspiring images. As regards option (b), there is a contribution on Chapter 5th-Journeys, with some recommendations for upating, and another one on Ch. 11th-The Teaching, particularly its “oral” character, which makes learning fluid and alive.

Living the Spirit of the Rule of Cafh

Living the Spirit of the Rule of Cafh

Inspired by the study of the Rule of Cafh, the members share their individual reflections on the Rule, and the ways in which they connect with its spirit. The revision and updating of the Rule should go hand in hand with the updating of our own way of living. In this way, we can make Renouncement evident, as it is the answer to the needs of the world, the souls and the new generations.

Going Deeper Into the Rule of Cafh

The different contributions focus on how the Rule helps us to develop spirituality, move forward on the path, and provide wisdom for the world. The work explores the usefulness of D. Bohm’s Dialogue; the gifts of the Method; aging as a spiritual journey; the meaning of renouncement and attitudes towards death. There are also reflections on Providential Economy and the work on relationships.

Creating the Teachings on Freedom and Responsibility

Creating the Teachings on Freedom and Responsibility

In this AW the members wrote very thoughtful and candid reflections on the process of creating the Teachings on Freedom and Responsibility. For the most part the members were initially overwhelmed or apprehensive about this task and felt that perhaps they could not measure up to the task. Some of them trace the change in their feelings about this work as the year progressed. The general sentiment expressed in their reflections was that they benefited a great deal from this approach to the course on Freedom and Responsibility. The overall gist of what they wrote was a description of their evolution from fear and apprehension to joy and confidence.
The reflections were accompanied by the 1) Annual Plans each of the two groups prepared, 2) sample teachings and 3) a list of references.
