Presence Circle (La Vita Francescana) - Ancient Wisdom for a Current Age

Can a 13th century spiritual path make sense in the 21st Century? What does a spiritual community look like in a technological society? Is it possible to live a life of simplicity, mindfulness & peace in an age of consumerism, distraction and violence? What is a Franciscan lifestyle and how might it lead one to abundance?

Join with others who are dedicated to simple living, mindfulness, balance, simplicity and relationship with Mother Earth and all her creatures for insight, challenge and conversation on living the Franciscan lifestyle.
