St. FrancisThe Yogic Prayer of St. Francis-Workshop of Awakening

February 17, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Kempton Hall
Led by Mirka Scalco Kraftsow. Awaken your inner channel of spirit through a yogic encounter with St. Francis of Assisi.

No experience with yoga is necessary for this workshop. This will primarily be an encounter with “Inner Yoga” – using conscious relaxation, simple body movement and guided meditation. Please bring a mat, blanket, and/or pillow – whatever you might need to feel comfortable while lying on the floor.
Born and raised in Italy, Mirka blends a lifelong devotion to the Christian saints with advanced training in the yoga sutras, movement, psychology, and meditation. Mirka has studied with some of the great yoga masters of our time, including Sri Krishnamacharya, TKV Desikachar and Gary Kraftsow, with whom she co-founded the American Viniyoga Institute.
Mirka has trained hundreds of yoga teachers and yoga therapists around the world. Now based in Sebastopol, California, she leads retreats, seminars, and workshops in the United States and Europe, including semi-annual yoga pilgrimages to Assisi.

CourageWay stonesThe Courage of Kindness: A Labyrinth Workshop

Saturday, March 17, 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Kempton Hall. Pre-registration is required. The cost is $10 per person. Click HERE to register.
We invite you to join us for a workshop supporting self-reflection and experiencing kindness and gentleness so important in this time. There will be time to reflect on your own yearning for kindness and gentleness, to share your experiences with others and explore the courage to give yearning a voice for change by walking the labyrinth. This workshop builds on the creation of an intellectual, emotional, and spiritual space to listen and respond to each other with encouragement and compassion. We are all in this together and companionship of even two or three kindred spirits can lead to courage for change. The Labyrinth, an ancient pattern of walking meditation, allows us to naturally contemplate deeply. In listening to our own inner guides we can connect with qualities necessary for change. Molly Osborne is becoming a facilitator for the Center for Courage and Renewal. Patricia Newton is a certified labyrinth facilitator and a member of the Trinity Labyrinth Guild. We are physicians developing healing communities with thanks to Trinity Cathedral.
