SPIRITUAL DOORWAYS: WELCOMING THE SACRED – Oct 21

Presenter: Bryanna Benedetti-Coomber, M. Div. Saturday, October 21, 2017 • 9:30 am–3:30 pm Doorways are an ancient symbol of spiritual growth and awakening, representing a transition or passageway from one space to another. They represent the thresholds, boundaries and potentials in our lives that we encounter in the subliminal or “in between” spaces in our journeys. Doorways separate and connect, welcome and refuse and serve as a connection to the Sacred. Join us for a day of reflection and prayer as we explore our own spiritual doorways and welcome the Sacred into our everyday lives. The day will include moments of prayer and meditation, personal and group reflection and creative exercises. All are welcome. Fee: $45.00 with lunch $35.00 without lunch Pre-registration required by Tuesday, October 17 Contact: Sr. Deborah at (818) 815-4496

ENNEAGRAM: PART ONE – Nov 4

Presenter: Sr. Pat Beirne, RSM Saturday, November 4, 2017 • 9:30 am–4:00 pm It has been several years since HSRC has had the privilege of offering the Enneagram workshops. We are delighted that Sr. Pat Beirne, experienced facilitator over many years, is willing to do a three-part series on this tool for understanding one’s self, one’s life and one’s spirituality. Come and participate in this marvelous opportunity to discover the gifts of “who you are” as well as those particular obstacles that you face on your individual path. The Enneagram has its origins in Sufi spirituality—but its human dimensions apply to all who are on the spiritual path. This exploration invites participants to engage in a process of exploring nine different but interconnected personality types and discerning the outlines of each person’s way of finding God and thus interacting with others. Fee: $60.00 with lunch $50.00 without lunch Pre-registration required by Monday, October 30 Contact: Sr. Deborah at (818) 815-4496

TAKE A DIFFERENT PATH – Jan 6
