Contemplative Spirituality

October 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Charlie Curtis will be presenting a free 2-hour workshop on Mindful Journaling at our next gathering of the Contemplative Spirituality group on Monday,
October 22.

Starting with an hour of theory, he will cover the history of journaling practices, research on the medical and mental health benefits of journaling, the details of several contemporary journal practices, and the practice of mindful journaling, both for stress reduction and as a doorway into spiritual experience.

Following this will be a second hour of experiential practice, beginning with a GMM (Guided Mindfulness Meditation) that leads participants through mindful journaling practice into greater peace, becoming aware of the still small voice of Spirit within, moving into that Peace that Passes Understanding, sensing the utter love that God has for us, and like the woman touching the hem of His robe, to open ourselves to the Healing Presence. This will be followed by a sharing of experiences.

Participants will receive at no cost a recording of the workshop and a pre-recorded CD on Mindful Journaling.
