The Art of Deep Listening

· Are you in a helping profession and ready to take the next step or are you looking for spiritual direction training?

· Are you at the point where you want to explore deeper levels of the faith life?

· Have you ever asked - "I wish I knew how to be present to this person without trying to fix them?"

· Do you yearn for connection to community beyond “programmatic” offerings?

· Are you ready to go deeper with yourself, God and others?

If you have answered, “yes” to these questions, then:

“THE ART OF DEEP LISTENING” may be the place for you!

Using the practice of “Spiritual Direction/Companioning” as our guide this 6-month community will explore the gift of deep listening to God, self and others.

During this 6-month experience each individual will awaken their faith walk through the exploration of the following practices:

       · Operative images of God
       · Meditation, mindfulness and silence
       · Discovery of story
       · Learning to ask deep questions of self and others
       · Understanding the mind, body and spirit connection
       · Integrating ancient and modern understandings of spiritual deepness
       · What it means to be a spiritual companion

By the end of the six months, each individual will have practical applications they will be able to use to impact their own sphere of influence.

      · This group is limited to 8 participants
      · The group will meet monthly, with online support between group meetings
      · Each participant will receive a certification of completion in the ”Art of Deep Listening”
