Connecting to the Heart

Saturday, February 9, 2019
10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Boyle Conference Room
Registration fee: $30

The heart is a symbol for love and our deepest and most essential selves. We often use phrases like “heart-broken” or “light-hearted.” We speak “from the heart” or get to the “heart of the matter.”

But have you ever wondered about the connection between your emotional heart and your physical heart? Although we may think that it’s our brain that’s running the show, there is now scientific research that shows it’s the heart that has the biggest impact on our well-being.

In this workshop Kate Wester will lead us in exploring the connection between our physical and metaphorical heart. Through movement, expressive arts practices, and meditation, you’ll learn ways to develop self-compassion, shift negative emotions, and explore gratitude. You will gain greater insight into your emotional life and greater freedom and energy in your physical body.

This workshop will involve some movement. Participants should have enough mobility to get up and down from the floor. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a notebook. Also feel free to bring your own yoga mat.

Kate Wester has been practicing yoga and meditation for more than twenty-five years. She is a teacher and integrative therapist drawn to the intersection of body-centered, contemplative, and expressive arts practices, incorporating mindfulness, somatic awareness, and the enhancement of self-compassion. She has an MA in pastoral counseling and is on staff at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being.

Enneagram Workshop

Saturday, February 23, 2019

Boyle Conference Room

An ancient and still relevant way of understanding personality, the Enneagram describes nine distinct ways of seeing the world. Giving insight into how people think, feel, and behave, this personality system can unlock our most basic motivations and instincts.

During this Saturday workshop led by Marci Madary, the Enneagram personality typology will be used as a framework for individuals to change, grow, and gain a greater sense of peace. By understanding what motivations drive a person to make choices, an individual can step away from compulsions and move into the land of conscious choice.

By transcending the limitations of personality, the possibility of greater potential opens. Through deeper understanding of motivations and fixations, personal blind spots are revealed, leading to empowerment and non-judgmental awareness.

Marci Madary is a nationally certified Enneagram teacher through the Palmer/Daniels school in the narrative tradition. She has taught the Enneagram in a variety of settings and worked one-on-one with individuals to help them understand themselves and interpersonal dynamics. She is also a spiritual director and Reiki practitioner. With a doctorate of ministry, she has worked in the area of spirituality for more than twenty years, and she also has a passion for poetry.

Spiritual Life Coaching

Spiritual Life Coaching, also referred to as spiritual direction, seeks to awaken us to the presence of the divine or sacred in our lives. A spiritual life coach or director is a companion on the journey of discovering how God or the transcendent is present in our day-to-day lives, as well as in moments of prayer and meditation. Spiritual Life Coaching is open to persons of all faith traditions who seek to deepen their relationship with the divine, to know their true self, and to be in right relationship with others.

To arrange for a spiritual director, call the Center at 312.787.8425.
