The Great Conversation: Creating A Sabbath

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately.”

-Henry David Thoreau.


creatingsabbathphotoTo slow down, rest and reflect. To live and make choices from a quiet place of wisdom instead of riled anxiety, deafening exhaustion.

We are not referring to Sabbath in relation to any one religion, rather recapturing the beautiful idea and intent behind a day dedicated to rest and reflection. The ritual of creating a day each week that is sacred. A day that is holy. A day that serves us physically and mentally. A day to step off the bus and unplug our phones and computers. To set down work and transactions. To get to know ourselves and others with greater intimacy. A day to live deliberately.

The discussion will dive into the resource of time and the practicalities of creating your own personal Sabbath. We’ll talk about benefits and logistics as well as shine light on the pitfalls we’ll encounter…societal conditioning and personal habit.

Join us November 19th for an intimate evening with Dr. Michael Schuler, Senior Minister of The First Unitarian Society of Madison. Dr. Schuler will present a few thoughts and then we’ll open things up for ideas, comments, questions. Studio owner Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau will mediate.

The Great Conversation: The setting is lovely, the tea is hot, the conversation is life-changing.


Thursday, November 19th, from 700pm- 8:15pm.


The Studio Downtown, 625 Williamson Street.
