    The way the Spiritual Direction is framed in theistic terms reminds me of teaching eastern religions @ United Theological Seminary: I was continually translating to and from a Biblical/theistic vocabulary. My root traditions lie in the lively synergy between Buddhism and Taoism in China. If the task of theistic SD is to detect the presence of the divine in our lives, a Buddhist rejoinder might be: how can I become more fully present in my life? with this moment? with things just as they are? In my current congregation (UU Society of River Falls), we explore this in a Sunday morning group on Mindfulness & Qigong and a Wednesday afternoon group called Live Poets Society.
