Some examples of these are:
Soul Care Retreats. You could call these mini retreats "checkpoints" or "rhythms" for your spiritual life. They help you to become aware of the spiritual landscape of your life, how you and God are getting along, and what your inner-life is like. There are many tools and practices to assist us to tend to our souls and to cultivate a habit of rest. Some examples of these are, spiritual awareness assessment, guided imaginative prayer, (visual) journaling, spiritual pathways assessment, work with the Enneagram and discernment exercises. Especially great times for a soul care retreats are seasons of transition (transitions between seasons, life stages, jobs, location, family roles etc.) Read more about Soul Care Saturdays here.
Praying Hands Workshops for Children. These guided gatherings are aimed to help nurture children's relationship with the loving Father God. During the workshops children are invited to try out creative, hands-on prayer practices that engage all senses, and are contemplative in nature. Although whole-person prayer practices are especially accessible to children, youth and families, anyone can benefit from art and movement as means to connect with their inner-lives and God. I use some of these practices in soul care workshops with adults as well. Read more about praying with hands here.
Teaching and Consulting. I am happy to come to speak at your retreat, event, leaders' gathering, church service, small group or conference.
Examples of the topics include:
– The Enneagram as a spiritual tool
– Spiritual direction and friendships as forms of soul care
– Embodied, contemplative prayer practices
– Intergenerational spiritual formation and children's spirituality
I also work with ministry leaders and pastors one-on-one in developing strategies for wholistic faith formation and soul care in their churches.
