CONTEMPLATIVE SPIRITUAL PRACTICES WORKSHOP
Explore spiritual practices gentle enough for grief, mental illness, & burnout.
IN THE CONTEMPLATIVE PRACTICES WORKSHOP, WE'LL EXPLORE...
You are unique with your own beliefs, experiences, and goals, but here's a taste of what we might work on together:
RECENTER YOUR FAITH PRACTICE
find new spiritual practices
It is normal for your spiritual life to change and grow throughout your life. I'll help you explore new ways of practicing your faith that honor what you need and believe right now with no pressure to be certain about any of it.
CONSIDER ANCIENT SPIRITUAL THINKERS
text (something about shame/guilt?)
explore how your faith is evolving
A healthy faith is one that shifts as you experience life and increase in empathy and understanding of the world, but that doesn't mean it isn't scary or overwhelming when what you believe changes. I'll help you learn to be gentle with yourself and discover the new and beautiful aspects of your faith.
establish new ways to feel grounded
Grief, mental illness, and major changes in life can leave us feeling like we might float away. I'll help you find and practice new ways of helping your mind, heart, and body feel grounded and secure even if life feels out of control.
set boundaries with unhelpful people
The people around us don't always understand when we experience grief, mental illness, or other changes in our life and faith. We'll work together to identify which parts of you are the most tender, establish new boundaries, and practice communicating them.
NOTE: While Becky's background is rooted in the Christian faith, this workshop is open to people of all beliefs and faiths. There will be discussion of ancient Christian contemplatives, but the focus will be solely on the contemplative spiritual practices, not Christian (or any other) theology.
