Becoming Sacred Listeners with Rev. Linda Finley

Thomas Merton called it “A Hidden Wholeness.” Maria Niemeth calls it “the Hero’s Heart.” We hold within us the Truth we are seeking. This process of learning to help people “hear themselves to wholeness” is designed to help Team Leaders, Board/Council Members, Practitioners, and Ministers learn to ask open, honest questions that guide the speaker to find their own Truth. Participants will learn the simple art of asking questions and will move into dyads/triads to practice how it works. The exercise is designed to build community and use our practices in new ways.

A Question of Worth with Rev. Bonnie Rose

Feelings of unworthiness often undermine our best attempts to live a good life.  Rev.
