Day 1 Find your Compass: Live your Purpose (Saturday, February 22, 2020; 9 a.m.–noon)

Day 2 Find your Story: Live your Purpose (Saturday, March 7, 2020; 9 a.m.–noon)

(in the Ministry Center)

Come spend two mornings with the Rev. Ann Gillespie and Amy Heard-Davison exploring our authentic self. We will do a series of creative, experiential exercises around the themes of Body, Spirit, Mind, and Heart.

  • Nourish our Bodies: We will practice listening through body prayer, yoga, and breath work.
  • Feed our Spirits: We will explore how we connect to our authentic selves and core values.
  • Enlighten our Minds: We will identify our stories and how we can move forward with freedom.
  • Tend our Hearts: We will consider how to nurture our relationships with God, self and others.

Each day will stand alone, but there will be continuity in exercises for Day 1 (November) and Day 2 (February). We encourage and welcome all to participate in both. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one and a journal to write in. Wear comfortable clothes.

Ann Gillespie is our new Senior Associate Rector with a passion for integrated health and healing. Her Finding God in Your Body workshops combine yoga, meditation, and God.

Amy Heard-Davison is a local Psychologist and Holy Comforter parishioner who enjoys exploring issues of faith and meaning grounded in the mind-body-spirit connection.
