Led by Ruth Wiley and Ashley McCarthy, psychotherapists
Saturday, September 29, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
You are invited to join us on a journey into self-compassion. In this workshop, we will explore the importance of self-compassion in living a vibrant life, including the connection and communication between body and mind. Participants will learn theological foundations as well as develop body-based mindfulness practices and discover the marvel of the brain's neuroplasticity as it relates to these practices. This workshop teaches self-compassion as a path to cultivating more fulfilling and nourishing ways of living, fostering deep movement into who we are created to be. Come and interactively participate in your own spiritual formation as we share what we are learning and practicing in our own journeys toward rooted self-compassion.
INTRODUCTION TO THE ENNEAGRAM
*free for all SL1 and SL3 students!
Led by Marjorie Donnelly, M.Ed. and certified Enneagram teacher
Saturday, October 20, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
The Enneagram is a unique model of understanding human behavior that is based in ancient wisdom and informed by contemporary psychology. It identifies nine personality types as different ways of understanding and responding to the world, thus offering a path for deeper self-awareness and greater love of self and others. We will explore the three “centers of intelligence” and the nine expressions of personality found within them. This workshop will be helpful for those who are new to the Enneagram, as well as those who have already been introduced to it but want to expand their understanding. Knowledge of your Type is not necessary, but if you would like to begin the process of discovering it, you can take the online test available at www.enneagraminstitute.com.
BREATH AS A PATHWAY TO PRESENCE: AN INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP TO HEALING BREATH
FULL - Please call (336) 544-1225 to be put on our waiting list.
Led by Summer Estes, MA, NCC, LPC and the Rev. Gregory Farrand
Saturday, November 10, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
This experiential workshop is designed to introduce both new and experienced participants to a powerful modality called Healing Breath. The ancients have long observed the power within one’s breath to create healing and transformation in one’s life. Science shows how a consistent conscious connected breathing practice lowers stress, helps decrease depression and anxiety, and increases our heart rate variability. Over the years, The Servant Leadership School of Greensboro has been working with different breath modalities. Pulling from these breath practices, we are excited to introduce participants to a unique modality we have crafted. We will create a safe space for participants to experience the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of breath work. We believe conscious connected breathing is a beautiful tool that opens us to our three centers of intelligence (body, heart, and mind) and helps us to unbrace long held tensions in the body. Conscious connected breathing practices are an ancient path for creating fertile ground from which the wisdom of our heart can arise. This half-day workshop is limited to 14 participants.
