Spiritual practices can help you in your work. They can help you:
This retreat will offer the opportunity to explore and experiment with a range of different practices and discover which ones will be most useful in your day-to-day work.
What to expect:
Particpants will engage in several spiritual practices that can contribute to their work, including two major practices (Ignatian Meditation and Centering Prayer) and several short practices, all involving prayer and meditation. They will also discuss a range of other useful practices and how they might be incorporated into the very active work life. There will also be a module focusing on what can be done to mantain clarity and focus in the middle of a crisis when little or no time is available.
Each participant will receive an eighty-page Spiritual Practices for the Active Work Life manual developed by the Center for Faith and Enterprise. This will provide background information and guidance for the practices experienced at the retreat as well as for additional practices that participants can try on their own after the retreat.
The setting will be relaxed and informal. The cost will be $100, and will include lunch and the manual.
The retreat will be led by Rob Tribken, Chairman of the Center for Faith and Enterprise, and Shelley Irvine, Director of Spiritual Guidance Ministries for La Canada Presbyterian Church. Onsite arrangements are being managed by Don Mills of the C.F.E. and Stephanie Struck of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership. Gideon Strauss, Executive Director of the De Pree Center, will welcome the participants.
