Dear Treasured Members & Friends,
As the Berkshires begin to stir from winter’s slumber, we’re greeted by the sight of budding trees and the return of vibrant moss under a generous sun, even as the last whispers of snow grace our landscape. This spring, The Rowe Center is excited to offer an array of programs designed to enrich your mind and spirit. Delve into the world of Norse mythology this weekend with our course on March 16th, where Swedish Skald Andreas Kornevall will guide you through the sagas of the Norse gods, the creation myth, and the profound Birth of Wisdom. In April, we explore radical wisdom with Dr. Mark S. Burrows, delving into the teachings of Meister Eckhart, and the nature of Eros with partners Ian MacKenzie & Asha Mærie. For those intrigued by the intersection of art and the end-of-life journey, we are offering two online programs in April. Kim Rosen and Jayne Demarkos both offer a deep, meaningful exploration of these themes.We’re also delighted to share that our blog is once again active, featuring articles that delve deeper into our upcoming program topics. These posts provide richer insights into what you can expect this spring at The Rowe Center as well as a recipe from the Rowe archives.

We are all eagerly working towards a summer to remember. Registration for youth camps is now open! Thanks to your support during the Spirit of Rowe campaign, we’ve upgraded a few of our services, including a new online registration process for our summer camp. This makes it easier for you to secure a place for an unforgettable summer experience. We’re also seeking enthusiastic staff to join our summer programs, now with a streamlined online application process.

April 19-21 at The Rowe Center – Radical Wisdom: Meister Eckhart as a Guide for the Perplexed in Our Times with Dr. Mark S. Burrows

In the heart of the late 13th and early 14th centuries, amidst the tumultuous times of Europe in that epoch, a profound voice emerged that continues to resonate in our day. This voice was that of Meister Eckhart, a German theologian, philosopher, and mystic whose teachings have captivated scholars and spiritual seekers alike over the centuries.

This program, led by Eckhart scholar and poet Mark S. Burrows, explores this wisdom through the window of his recent books of meditative poems that voice Eckhart’s thought in ways described by a recent critic as “brimming with passion, originality, and depth.” Come to discover, explore, and reap wisdom’s harvest.

Death’s Door Undefended at the Threshold with Kim Rosen


Led by Kim Rosen, with Mary Lou van Schaik

This series is designed for those who have previously experienced the Death’s Door (aka Feast of Losses) series, as well as for those who are new to the course.

Through an immersive alchemy of poetry, music, movement, guided explorations, and deep, authentic sharing, we will dive ever more intimately into themes touched in the original series, interwoven with new explorations. Saying goodbye, opening to incapacity; meeting “everyday deaths”, making peace with our bodies; practicing the “art of losing”; asking for help; and welcoming not knowing as a portal to vibrant aliveness — these are a few of the realms we’ll explore.
