(Spirit) Prairie Jubilee Events: Oct 18-20/13

It is with excitement that Maya Consulting shares a few upcoming events in which Shelly is involved as an Associate of the Prairie Jubilee Programme:

Care of the soul
for the soul who cares

A natural “next step” for those offering Spiritual Direction is this every-­‐other-­‐ year opportunity for retreat and learning.

This weekend event will be a refresher in the PJP “container” and a chance to renew, deepen and practice accompaniment skills including opportunities for feedback through a Supervision experience.

This year’s retreat, Care of the Soul for the Soul Who Cares, is facilitated by Karen Scott Barss.

The retreat will offer opportunities for participants to deepen their current contemplative practice(s) and explore a variety of new practices to support their own well-­‐being and that of those they serve. Practices will be determined by participants’ needs and interests, drawing upon, but not limited to those featured at the Contemplative Practices Tree.

The retreat will also integrate insights from the Enneagram to help discern what practices might best resonate with one’s present way of being in the world.

Soul Mentoring
Intensive retreat for contemplative supervision

Contemplative Supervision is a continuing education/formation intensive for Supervisors and those wishing to become Supervisors in the contemplative tradition. It includes a practicum that will intersect with workshop on Soul Care.

This extended weekend program offers experience in the practice of offering supervision. It is intended for those with more than 3 years experience in their field of spiritual direction, chaplaincy, order of ministry, pastoral, or clinical counselling. The weekend explores the nature and challenges of contemplative supervision.

This year the ancient symbol of the Enneagram will guide us through such topics as ethical behaviour, the value and importance of the person and community, accountability, and competence. The symbol invites a myriad of questions for our exploration, conversation, and practical application such as: What is spiritual abuse? How are “knowing” and “self-­‐knowing” related? How do we live deep intrinsic and extrinsic valuing?

These are basic to our nature. They are our body’s knowing how to take care of itself and they help us relate to “other”, nature, our social environment and the cosmos.
