Contemplating Spiritual Wellness: Kindling Our Hearts To Burn With Thy Flame

November 1 @ 5:30 pm - November 3 @ 12:00 pm PDT

$365.00 – $485.00

Spiritual wellness is much more a journey than a destination. We discover it’s many facets through the intentional living of our daily lives with God. Sometimes it feels like mysterious graced gift. Other times we are aware of how we co-create spiritual wellness in partnership with God through interaction and insight as we travel together. Because spiritual wellness unfolds in and from us over time, more helpful than a rigid definition or plan may be exploring a collage of pieces that can create a compass for taking us further down the road into the heart of the matter. Desert fathers and mothers, scripture and prayer practices, poetry and music, images and creation, offer some of those pieces. Join me as I share some of my collage or compass for discovering and maintaining a kindled heart, and wonder with you about yours. Our time together will become a creative prayer practice as we share in contemplating spiritual wellness and what our own prayer collage might look like as visio divina for keeping spiritual wellness gently before us as we live.

 

PRESENTER

Erin Matteson is a spiritual director, retreat facilitator, musician and Boundless Compassion Facilitator. She is ordained and spent nearly 25 years as a pastor in the Church of the Brethren before transitioning to more focused spiritual formation work with persons of various stories and belief systems. Erin received a certificate in the art and practice of spiritual director from Mercy Center and also trained there as a supervisor for spiritual directors. She has served as staff for Mercy Center for both the Art and Practice of Spiritual Direction and Sacred Journey programs. She currently serves with a team of staff for The Bread of Life Center training spiritual directors. Erin has also attended numerous events with Joyce Rupp including the four day Boundless Compassion Retreat and a facilitator training where she became a certified teacher of the Boundless Compassion program. She now leads events focusing on various aspects of compassion, with a particular heart for encouraging self-compassion, and compassion for creation and those marginalized. Erin has a passion for creating sacred space for deep listening and compassionate companionship for the greening and growing, ripening and becoming of each one, and so, all creation. She works companioning individuals and groups toward this end. She loves spending time with creation gardening, at the ocean or in the woods, walking or running. She also loves spending time with friends and family, especially her life partner, Russ, her daughters and their partners and her granddaughter, and watching the Chicago Cubs play baseball whenever she can.
