Author to speak at 4th annual Cell2Soul retreat

Author Brian T. Maurer is slated to speak at this fall’s Cell2Soul gathering at Mason Hill in the Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts on Saturday, October 3, 2009. Maurer will deliver a short presentation on Henry David Thoreau and the significance of his philosophic outlook for contemporary living.

Of the many observations that we could make about the man Thoreau—indeed, we could make many, because, like us, Thoreau was a complex human being with his own inconsistencies, pet peeves and private issues—today I will emphasize two:  the satisfaction he derived from working with his hands, and the cultivation of his spiritual awareness.  The two are not mutually exclusive.
