August 10 – 12, 2018

 

Divine Mystery as Mother:

Discovering the Sacred Feminine through Archetypes

 

A Weekend Retreat at

St. Francis Springs Prayer Center

Stoneville NC

 

Facilitated by Linda Brown & Marilyn Wolf.

The time for deepening our connection to the Divine Feminine is now! In this weekend retreat, we will create a small, safe container to experience and explore the presence of God the Mother in our lives.

If you attended Linda’s “Spirit in My Life” class or the first Divine Feminine retreat with Linda and Marilyn, this retreat will increase your understanding of and intimacy with God as Mother. If you didn’t attend these, you will be gently guided into the wonder of knowing God as the Feminine.

The map for our exploration will be such questions as:

• What is your own personal “God story”?

• If you merged with the Light of the Mother, what would you become?

• What is your Sacred Name?

The Enneagram: A Map for Understanding Ourselves and Others @ Space for Conscious Living
Jun 15 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
The Enneagram: A Map for Understanding Ourselves and Others @ Space for Conscious Living | Greensboro | North Carolina | United States

The Enneagram: A Map for Understanding Ourselves and Others

Facilitated by Marilyn Wolf, M.Ed.

This workshop is designed for BOTH the beginner as well as for folks who have basic knowledge of the Enneagram but want to deepen their understanding of how some of the core elements of the system fall together to make a coherent path for personal and spiritual growth.
In this workshop, we will cover:

  • A brief history of the Enneagram and the meaning of the symbol
  • The 3 Centers of Intelligence which explain each Type’s attachments and drive for survival
  • A basic description of each Type which includes focus of attention, core motivations, fears and desires
  • The “constellation” of 5 Types which influence how we show up and function in the world

WORKSHOP FORMAT: Our approach will combine instruction combined with group participation so we can learn from one another what it actually means to be a certain Type. This kind of sharing is fun and enhances our understanding and acceptance of others as well as ourselves.

DO I NEED TO KNOW MY TYPE? 
 No. In fact, this workshop can be very helpful for that. Prior to the workshop, I recommend you purchase and read The Essential Enneagram by David Daniels, MD. There are also 2 websites which offer online tests and information which can be very helpful:
www.enneagramworldwide.com and www.enneagraminstitute.com

DATE: Saturday, June 15

TIME:
9:00 – 1:00  Coffee and pastries at 8:30

LOCATION:
Space for Conscious Living, 2012 New Garden Rd., Suite E, Greensboro NC

COST:
$50 – $100  Pay what you can in this range.

Marilyn Wolf, M.Ed. Although I am teacher of the Enneagram, I continue to call myself a student because I never stop studying it and attending trainings. I have trained with Enneagram pioneers Helen Palmer and Russ Hudson. As a teacher, I draw from their models as well as those of various other Enneagram experts such as Beatrice Chestnut, Richard Rohr, Sandra Maitri, Susan Rhodes and others. Besides a model for helping us better understand our personalities and those of others, I always teach the Enneagram as a path for personal and spiritual growth.

The Journey to Oz and Back: Our Search for Home @ Office of Ken Frazier | Greensboro | North Carolina | United States

The Journey to Oz and Back: Our Search for Home

Facilitated by: Ken Frazier and Phillip Ward

 

“You don’t need to be helped any longer. You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas.”
—Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz is an allegory about our inner search for our true home. The heart of the story is our human desire to return to the love and safety we once knew but which we lost when the storms of life took us on a different path. The characters in the story symbolize our belief that we lack what we need to find our way home.

In this 2-day workshop, we will:

  • Explore the search for home as a journey of mind, body and spirit
  • Discover the barriers which you have placed between yourself and home
  • Tap into your inner power to return to the love and safety you once knew
  • Learn how to use this power cognitively, somatically and spiritually for your own healing and to be a healing force in the world

We hope you will join us to come to know yourselves better and find your true inner home.

Dates: Sat., July 20 and Sun., July 21

Times:
9:00 – 5:00 both days. Lunch on your own

Location:
Office of Ken Frazier, 5318 W. Friendly Ave., Suite B, Greensboro NC

Cost:
$140 – $190

Workshop Presenters:
Together, Ken and Phillip have developed a model for teaching the principles and skills needed for the integration of mind, body and spirit for engaging life with more self-awareness and presence. Ken brings his expertise in Cognitive Mechanics, a method for helping others learn to recognize the ego-mind and access the inner Observer-Decision Maker to more consciously navigate life’s conflicts. Phillip brings his expertise in teaching the principles of Tai Chi – balance, centering, alignment and conscious awareness – as a way for managing everyday life, always encouraging his students to “never miss a moment to generate a higher level of consciousness.”

Ken holds a M.Ed. in counseling and has served as a mental health counselor for forty years. Through his practice, the Phobia Treatment Center of Greensboro, he works with clients for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. He is a teacher of A Course in Miracles and has been trained in EMDR and Mindfulness. He incorporates these into his work with clients when called for. For more information, read Ken’s bio here.

Phillip is a licensed acupuncturist, certified herbalist and an energy work practitioner. He has studied the Way of Harmonious Living with a Tai Chi and Qi Gong master as well as External Qi Healing with a 25th generation Taoist monk.

Creating Inner Space

Facilitated by: Ken Frazier, M.Ed., LPC

 

“The mind is great when used as a tool and not so great when it is calling the shots.”
~Joan Borysenko, author of Inner Peace for Busy People and The Power of the Mind to Heal

Eckhart Tolle, Joan Borysenko, Byron Katie and many other spiritual teachers tell us that it’s not what happens to us that causes our distress. It’s what we think about these events that are the real source of our suffering.

We will use the principles and practices of Cognitive Mechanics to understand how our thoughts (i.e., cognitions) are CAUSE and that emotions, behaviors and even physical sensations are EFFECT. Understanding the relationship between “ego mind” and the “observer/decision maker” allows us to effectively use mindfulness to create distance between ourselves and the mental-emotional turmoil of a mind at war with itself.

Specifically, this experience will help you:

  • Examine the relationship between your ego and your observer/decision maker
  • Identify your fundamental ego beliefs that drive your limiting stories about who you are and what the world is
  • Learn specific tools to deal with the worry, catastrophic thinking, and automatic self-defeating thoughts that keep you stuck in painful patterns
  • Develop a “corrective” belief system for yourself
  • Learn to apply the principles of Cognitive Mechanics to support achieving your desire for more peaceful living

Date: Saturday, Aug. 17

Time:
9:00 – 5:00  Lunch on your own

Office of Ken Frazier, 5318 W. Friendly Ave., Suite B, Greensboro NC
