dates: Sept. 25 - Nov. 12 (with a full-day retreat Oct. 26), 2019
day/time: Tuesdays from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
where: Trinity Episcopal Church, St. Charles
maximum enrollment: 8 in each class
Are you overwhelmed with busyness? Do you worry? Have your prayers become perfunctory or hurried petitions between activities? Do you want to learn to manage your worry or create space between activities so you can rest in God's love? Then this class is for you if you are a mature teen between 16 and 19 years or an adult of any age, including couples and multi-generational families.
This experiential 8-week class will lead you in prayers of the heart and reinforce self-awareness to non-judgmentally manage the thoughts and emotions that keep us trapped in the busyness of everyday life.
The class combines mindfulness with cognitive behavioral tools. There are no PowerPoints -- just experiencing prayer and guided discussion. Each class devotes the first half-hour to discussing your experiences with your daily home practice. The second half-hour focuses on learning tools to develop awareness of thoughts and emotions. This is followed by a half-hour of Christian meditation. Participants spend the last half-hour in guided discussion about your experience.
