Follow the Broken Road:  Chronic Illness as a Spiritual Journey

Watching life as we know it fall away, being spun around until we are disoriented...the diagnosis of a chronic illness whisks us away from the land of health like the cyclone lifted Dorothy from Kansas.  Leaving behind the familiar, we face uncertainty and fear.  We may find former strategies no longer apply, and we long to return "home" to a feeling of balance and wellness.  Like Dorothy, the way of return is uncertain.  but we must journey inward to find it.  Like her, we must follow the broken road.

*      Learn to quiet your mind and heart in the face of an uncertain future.
*      Explore the stages of chronic illness as a spiritual journey.
*      Cope with changes associated with illness.
*      Share the journey with others who live with chronic illness.


Exploring Your Spiritual Self:  Connecting with Inner Resources for Healing

Following the broken road and coping with chronic illness gives us an opportunity to journey inward and connect with our inner spiritual resources for healing.  Using the spiritual compass, we question what new opportunities are opening for us as well as what we are being called to leave behind on this spiritual quest.  We explore what grounds us and centers us spiritually and identify our spiritual companions and guides.  This is an interactive workshop with art, journaling, and music.


Stress Management through Mind Body Skills

Managing the stressors of daily life can seem taxing at its best and overwhelming at its worst.  This Mind Body Skills workshop provides mindfulness based skills to help mediate the effects of these stressors upon one's well-being.  Meditation, breathing, movement, and guided imagery provide skills that help activate the relaxation response and help to build resources for coping.
