    Four Thursday Evenings, April 30-May 21

    6:30-9:00 pm

    Presenter: Dr. Bob Mischke



    Eckhart Tolle's teachings compliment and can deepen our understanding of Centering Prayer as taught by Fr. Thomas Keating.  And both of these modern day wisdom teachers are highlighting, even clarifying, in today's context, what Jesus of Nazareth taught.  Join us for these four evenings to explore these wonderful teachings, and more importantly, we will explore together how we can better apply these teachings in our daily lives.  There will be video segments from Tollé as well as Keating. RSVP by Tuesday, April 28. Cost: $60

    Come join us for a weekend with John Philip Newell, poet, peacemaker and scholar. John Philip teaches and preaches internationally on themes related to the sacredness of the earth and the oneness of the human soul. He is one of the most prominent teachers of spirituality in the English-speaking world and we are honored to have you join us for a weekend of renewal, study and reflection at the historic St Andrews Episcopal Church in downtown Denver.


    Friday, May 15, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

    John Philip will be speaking from his most recent book “The Rebirthing of God. Christianity’s Struggles for New Beginnings”. He speaks directly to the heart of Christians—those within the well-defined bounds of Christian practice and those on the disenchanted edges—as well as to the faithful and seekers of other traditions. Following the lecture there will be a book signing (with books available for purchase) and small reception. Space is limited to only 150 people, so we encourage you to purchase tickets as early as possible. Doors open at 6:00pm.


    Saturday, May 16, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

    John Philip will host a workshop, allowing participants to settle deeper into a study of Rebirthing of Christianity. In this three-hour workshop, we will explore the eight major features of a new birthing of Christianity, as well as focused time on meditation, reflection and prayer. Space is limited to only 50 people for this very special workshop. At noon, we'll share a light lunch and then have an hour of prayer and meditation.

    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 decision­ making?
    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.


    Presenters
    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.

    Find Your Sanctuary: Create places of Rest, Renewal and Refuge with Terry Hershey 


    Everyone has a sanctuary. If only in our mind. Even if we can’t name it, we know of its power. It is a place where you do not owe anyone and where no one owes you.  We are wired to need grounding and renewal and less hurry.  And yet, we make choices—with our time and with our days—that are detrimental to our emotional and spiritual well-being. In sanctuary, we let thislife in. Every bit. In sanctuary we can be wholehearted; whether grief or gladness or sadness or joy. We make space to see and to be seen. We make space to welcome, to offer comfort and hope.


    Terry Hershey is an author, humorist, inspirational speaker, dad, ordained minister, golf addict, and smitten by French wine. He divides his time between designing sanctuary gardens and sharing his practice of “pausing” and “sanctuary,” to help us do less and live more. Terry’s book, Sanctuary: Creating Places for Grace in Your Life, offers the permission to slow down and to be gentle with ourselves, in a world that demands More-Bigger-Faster. Most days, you can find Terry out in his garden–on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound—because he believes that there is something fundamentally spiritual about dirt under your fingernails.
