    We will offer an indoor labyrinth for meditation Sunday evenings, February 22-March 29, from 6:00-8:30p.m. There is no admission charge, and everyone is welcome.

    The labyrinth is an ancient prayer and meditation tool. Labyrinths have been used for thousands of years to help people forget the difficulties of their everyday lives and draw closer to God.

    Unlike a maze, there are no dead ends. There is only one path, so it is impossible to get lost. The simple action of walking a path is helpful in relieving stress. Some people view the labyrinth as an allegory for life, sometimes feeling close to God, only to be thrown suddenly out to the edge, or walking in unison with others and then at a distance from them.

    St. Brigit also has a permanent outdoor labyrinth which is open to the public year-round. It is a full-size replica of the well-known labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France dating from 1220.

    • St. Brigit Episcopal Church

    The highlight of St. Brigit’s contemplative events in March will be our Vernal Equinox Service, marking the first day of Spring. The service is scheduled for Friday, March 20, at 7:00p.m. and will focus on the theme of hope for newness of life.

    This will be the tenth service in St. Brigit’s A’it Caol series. A’it Caol (pronounced atch qweel) is Gaelic for “A Thin Place.” These services are created to offer guests an experience of God through a unique liturgy, which combines ancient tradition with contemporary language. They include specially designed meditation areas, reflecting the Scriptural lessons, and sacred music with an ethereal sound.

    Ancient people marked this day with thanksgiving for the return of light and warmth. Spring promised rebirth and hope. In the Christian church, the Vernal Equinox is significant in that it is used in determining the date of Easter, the first Sunday following the first full moon after the Equinox.

    St. Brigit Episcopal Church is located at 110 Johnson Street in Frederick. Visit www.stbrigit.org or www.facebook.com/StBrigit for more information.

    Continuing Education for Spiritual Directors

    With New Eyes: Developing the Inner Observer


    Topic
    The spiritual path requires that we become conscious, that we “wake up” and see with new eyes. This waking up involves developing an Inner Observer, or Silent Witness, which helps us notice when we are getting off center and reacting rather than responding. In this workshop you will learn three of the most important things to observe about your behavior – what the Enneagram calls: the Passions, The Focus of Attention, and The Defense Mechanism. Increasing our self- observation in these areas can lead to a path of transformation.

    Presenter

    Rev. Martie McMane

    PRESENTER BIO:   Rev. Martie McMane holds advanced certification in teaching the Enneagram and has introduced over 1,000 people to Enneagram at workshops, seminars, and retreats throughout the country. In Colorado she teaches the Enneagram for the Benet Hill Spiritual Direction program and has also offered workshops through the Contemplative Beehive. As the Senior Minister of First Congregational Church, Boulder, she is most interested in how the Enneagram can help deepen our consciousness and awaken us to spiritual transformation.

    Spiritual Discovery: A Method for Group Discernment


    Topic
    Are you part of a community experiencing a growing interest in spiritual decision­making?
    Are you in a group engaged in tasks calling for a spiritual dimension? This workshop introduces a method for spiritual discernment that can be used by a wide variety of groups. The method can also be used for group spiritual direction and peer group supervision.
    Based on a Prayer Model designed by Jane Vennard, the presenters’ Spiritual Discovery Method draws on both the spirit and the intellect while also encouraging significant growth and change in the communities and individuals touched by such groups.

    PRESENTER BIOS:   
    Presenters Catherine Tran and Sandy Boyd are the authors of a just-published book on the topic of today’s workshop. They are seasoned spiritual directors and have served a number of congregations for over twenty years. Their extensive experience in leading spiritual discernment groups has led to the writing of their new book. You are invited to check the book’s website (www.spiritualdiscoverymethod.com) and attend the book’s formal launch following the workshop.

    Catherine received her Master of Divinity in 1994 and MA in Theology in 1995. In 1998, she earned a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Shalem Institute. Catherine is co-pastor at Grace Church in Buena Vista, CO. She is an accomplished pianist, and enjoys gardening, sewing, furniture finishing, baking, providing hospitality, and making a comfortable home in the mountains west of Denver. She met her husband in high school and they have been married since 1979. They have two children.

    Sandy grew up in Iowa and lived in many places before settling in Colorado 25 years ago. Her varied occupations have ranged from professional librarian to Episcopal Priest to seminary/university teacher. A recent project has been her work with Catherine training congregational groups in discerning ministries and it is out of that work that their book came into being. She is pleased to be able to offer their Method in the SDCO Workshop format.
