Spring & Summer 2018 Workshops
I will be presenting a workshop at the 2018 Spiritual Director's International conference in St. Louis, MO in April 2018. The conference is open to the public and all are welcome to participate. The dates of the conference are April 27 - 29, 2018.
The title of my workshop is:
"Branching Out: Using the Wisdom of Trees to Connect Us with
Our Spiritually Diverse Communities"
"Trees act in ways that connect themselves to the earth as well as reaching out to provide support back to the earth. When trees grow together in a community, even if they are not from the same family, they will find ways to shade, protect and support their fellow trees. We will use this metaphor to explore our own spiritual lives, as well as the spiritual lives of those around us from diverse spiritual communities."

June 25 - June 27, 2018: I will be co-teaching a workshop with my colleague, Nancy Wilkinson, who is an art instructor. We will be using yoga, meditation and journaling to explore how we are connected to our natural world through our experiences with trees. With this exploration, we will then bring it to life through the use of art and painting. No previous experience is necessary to participate.
