"Cultivating a Listening Heart through Chanting and Meditation"

Mindfulness meditation, now lauded by the medical community for its physical and mental benefits, has deep religious roots dating back to the book of Genesis.  Discover for yourself how chanting a verse from Psalms and meditating can quiet your mind and soothe your soul.  Learn to bring your attention to each and every moment and cultivate your capacity to listen non-judgmentally, with an open heart, to yourself and others.

"A Contemplative Taste of the Camino"

The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is an ancient pilgrimage route in Northern Spain that Christians have walked for millennia. In addition to learning some of the traditions, history and legends that surround this sacred route, Kristin will share her experience of prayer while walking the Camino, and then invite you into a period of silence and prayer in a similar manner through the contemplation of the music and photos of the region.

"From Mulan to Harry Potter:  Children and their Search for Meaning"

Equipping children to maintain a sense of their own wholeness and holiness in the midst of our fragmented, perpetually distracted culture can seem like an impossible dream. The faux friendships of social media, the frenetic and violent narratives of “children’s” entertainment, the almost complete conquest of the home as a marketplace – these conditions often overwhelm children and those who love them! But there IS hope. By guarding sacred space, claiming Sabbath, and focusing on the One who created us for more, parents, grandparents, and the children they love can live lives of purpose and joy together, even now.

Awakening the Gifts of the Imagination

Who am I and whose I am demand a willingness to explore the paradoxes of the soul:  gifts and wounds, shadow and light, strengths and weaknesses, limitations and possibilities.  In Circles of Trust, participants will engage in safe space where dimensions of the imagination will be explored through poetry, imagery, music and story.  When we awaken the imagination, we begin to inherit our true life and reclaim the True Self.
