Nurturing Contemplative Experiences Workshop 2019

SoulStream Presents:

Nurturing Contemplative Experiences

A Workshop in Facilitation

REGISTRATION IS NOW FULLPlease contact us to be added to the waitlist.

The mission of SoulStream centers on nurturing contemplative experience with Christ.

Many Partners and friends have felt the invitation to offer contemplative experiences to others as a way to fulfill this mission in their own circle of relationships. As a result, the SoulStream Leadership Team thought it would be very helpful to explore with others some of the themes of facilitation that have made the courses offered by SoulStream so helpful.

This workshop is for those who:

  • have a growing experience of contemplative life
  • and are interested in facilitating contemplative experiences with a range of focus, such as an introduction to contemplative living, a one-day prayer retreat, or a weekend introduction to various prayer forms

The intent will be to explore three core values that undergird SoulStream facilitation:

  • facilitating out of our own honest and current life experience
  • offering the material with personal vulnerability
  • and working together in community as facilitators.

Within the framework of those values, the workshop will also offer opportunity to explore specific aspects of planning for such an experience:

  • developing desired outcomes
  • asking questions that help to go deeper
  • considering the value of humour
  • addressing potential issues we might encounter
  • finding an appropriate rhythm and structure

In preparation, participants will be expected to engage with some material prior to the workshop.

We invite your participation!
