Here’s a bit more information:
I’ll be doing the two main sessions, talking about finding a greater sense of breath and space and grace in our lives. I’ll be sharing Scripture and personal stories that have been integral in my journey of experiencing breathing room.
We will also get the opportunity to hear from four of my dear friends who will be leading amazing workshops:
Wanida is a worship leader at Flood and a singer/songwriter and she’ll be talking about nurturing our creativity in the trenches of everyday, real life. She’s going to share about her own “creative story” and invite attendees to do the same — considering where we may have gotten stuck in our own expressions.
Linsey is a pastor at Flood and she’ll be teaching about and leading a beautiful prayer practice called the Welcoming Prayer. Sometimes we want to avoid “difficult emotions” but when we do that, they follow us, unattended. The Welcoming Prayer is a way we can turn toward negative feelings instead of praying for them to go away.
Erica is a professionally trained modern dancer and dance teacher. She’ll be talking about how we can find breathing room physiologically. She’ll share about listening to our bodies, breathing in a more nourishing way, and working with our bodies when we’re feeling stressed or anxious.
Elaine is a licensed marriage and family therapist and the founder and director of The Soul Care House. She’ll be talking about how to deal with situations when we are feeling triggered — when we have disproportionally big feelings about something without necessarily knowing why. She’s going to show us how to supervise our own feelings, identify our “historical stuff” that may be unresolved, and understand when and why we get triggered.
As you can see, this is a fierce lineup of workshop presenters. I’m thrilled to be partnering with them all. In addition, Wanida and Linsey will be leading us in a time of music and reflection that I know will be so very nourishing.
We hope you’ll consider attending!
