Three-Part Series on Spiritual Practices for Groups

Attend one, two, or all three sessions. Contemplative group spiritual practices provide insight, help uncover inherent wisdom, and foster discernment. Each week we will learn and experience a different group practice. The facilitators will offer follow-up groups for those who wish to continue the practice. How might you engage these prayerful processes in your direction practice and/or faith community?

Part I: The Wisdom Circle

Location: St. Andrew Presbyterian; Facilitator: Rev. Karl Stevens

$25 Spirituality Network Spiritual Directors Association members; $35 nonmembers; Join SNSDA >

This practice, based on indigenous councils, gives equal attention to all voices of the circle so that true wisdom can arise without the pitfalls that come with hierarchy and deference to power. A central question is posed and then others are invited, one at a time, to offer their insights. The “harvest” of wisdom is gathered and shared with the group at the end of the session.

Part II: Circles of Trust

Location: St. Andrew Presbyterian; Allison DeHart, Certified Circles of Trust Facilitator

$25 Spirituality Network Spiritual Directors Association members; $35 nonmembers; Join SNSDA >

Author Parker Palmer describes the “shy soul” that requires a safe and trustworthy space to emerge. The circle of trust is designed to foster stillness, deep listening, and reverence for all voices present. It cultivates a unique space to listen more deeply to our own souls as well as each other. This process of “being alone together” elicits more of the richness of who we are of as we “rejoin soul and role.”
