There is more to life…
People come to MICH because they are looking for something more. It is not that their lives are bad, or that they are miserable; it is often quite the opposite. More often than not, it is that they have succeeded in more or less getting everything they wanted, or thought they wanted. But despite all that, there is a certain emptiness, a certain longing for meaning, depth, greater fulfillment. They question the meaning of life, they question the meaningfulness of their lives, they are not satisfied with mind numbing television, nor the movies, nor the popular distractions, commercials and material pursuits.
Some come because they’re burnt out. Or feeling like they are about to be burned out. That’s an interesting phrase in itself, isn’t it? One gets the image of the candle or a flame that is no longer fed.
And MICH is the perfect place to come to be resourced. It is the source, it is the wellspring that fuels and fans your flame. It is a place to come to be renewed. We call a day at MICH a spa for the soul.
When you come to MICH it is a day for you, a day to treat yourself, to take the time to explore the innermost parts of you, the unknown parts of you, the mysteries of life, the most important questions of life that remain unanswered by science, religion, academia and society.
What you will find is a container that contains spirituality, science, history, psychology, philosophy, nature, health, medicine, therapy, homeopathy, energy, anthropology and anthroposophy. It contains all those things and something much more than all that, because the container we hold is bigger than any one subject, it holds all of life, and the entire human journey.
All of our work, including our mini courses and workshops invite you to experience all the interconnections, the weave of life, the rich tapestry of human experience.
MICH doesn’t fabricate meaning nor create lofty goals for us to pursue or ideologies that then take over our lives and thoughts. We go in the opposite direction: we go inwardly to discover meaning within ourselves.
We use the tools of inquiry in dialogue, the same tools that humans have used since earliest times in India, Egypt, China and ancient Greece. We use the tools of the great philosophers such as Lao Tse, Buddha, Plato, and Aristotle, who questioned and sought answers through deep contemplation.
We are all capable of that higher faculty of thinking. We just don’t take the time to develop it. We allow ourselves to drown in the background noise of superficial rational and irrational thought. The human mind is capable of contemplation – is capable of sinking beneath the noise, the tumultuous waves at the stormy surface of incessant thinking to something still, profound, and quiet and rich and stable.
That is what we want you find. We hold the container to help you discover inner resources you never knew you had and to develop and apply these resources to your daily life. If you are in the program, you will also have a way to assist others, to hold that space of deep contemplation that allows for self discovery, the discovery of meaning, depth and life.
So, welcome to a day at MICH: a day of exploration of questions that are important to every human being and central to our lives, and an introduction to tools that you can apply in your daily life and your relationships and your relationship with yourself and with your soul.
