SDCO Brown Bag Lunch Session Presents:
Rev. Michelle Danson

The Essential Role of the Ancient Art of Spiritual Direction in the Reformation of the Church in the 21st Century

September 4, 2014
11-2 pm
St. John’s Cathedral

The World in the 21st Century is in a time of rapid change. The Mainline Christian Church is struggling to be relevant, attendance is dwindling, and in order to survive it is being called to a re-formation, to equal or exceed, that of the 16th Century Europe. An essential aspect of the "Emerging Church" is the ability to listen deeply, personally, and in community to the movement of the Spirit. In this workshop we will explore in interactive, creative ways the relevance of the ancient art of Spiritual Direction to today's world. We will integrate history, Post Modernism, Quantum Physics, Systems Theory & the work of Margaret Wheatley " Leadership and the New Science".

Bio: Michelle is a native of Yorkshire, England. Michelle received an Honors degree in Physics at the University of Durham, England, followed by a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. She has taught in Schools in England and Scotland.  She earned an M. Div. at the Iliff School of Theology, Denver, and a Certificate in Christian Spirituality from The General Theological Seminary, NYC.
