8 a.m. Coffee and Registration
Clergy and church workers face numerous pressures and demands that often put their health at risk. How can we build upon practices of Health and Wellness that shape our seminary experience and build a foundation for our future ministries? Join us for this Saturday retreat to explore a holistic framework for Health and Wellness in Ministry, and share with students from other traditions the “best practices” from those who work with congregations and ministers across the country.
A leader in the field, Rev. Scott Stoner will join us from the Living Compass Foundation (Chicago) for a day of exploring a holistic approach to health in ministry, doing a self-assessment, adopting proven methods of change, and developing a personal wellness plan.
A Holistic View of Health: Spirit, Mind, Body
Small group discussions–lead by students–will help participants share their learnings, build supportive relationships, and identify their goals.
In addition, there are break out sessions after lunch to try something new!
Yoga as Embodied Prayer – Fr. Tom Ryan, CSP, Paulist Community
Meditations that Nurture Gratitude and Compassion – Patience Robbins, Shalem Institute
Improv. Humor: What it can teach us about Wellness – Rev. Scott Stoner
