Finding Presence

Finding Presence ~ 6:30-8:30 pm

Thursdays, January 14-February 18, 2021

We are a hurting and confused world.  Millions of persons across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and hundreds of thousands have lost their lives. We have all been learning to adapt our lifestyles to include social distancing and masks, and also missed family gatherings including birthdays, graduations and funerals. Some of us are grappling with life changing situations like job loss, ill family members and friends, and food insecurities. And, many of us are just tired.

Kavanna House desires to do our part in helping you navigate this season of anxiety and weariness. This six-week online experience will offer participants a chance to explore spiritual practices and rhythms centered on finding a sense of peace and presence including: guided imagery, visio divina, breath prayer, play, journaling and setting boundaries.

Particpants will gather on Zoom from 6:30-8:30 pm on Thursday evenings between January 14 and February 18, 2021. The rhythm of the evenings will include teaching, questions and group processing. The total cost for this program is $125. Scholarships are available for anyone desiring to participate who needs financial assistance. Please contact Adele Seebold if scholarship assistance is needed.

 

Prepare for this ONLINE retreat by ...

  • Choosing and preparing a space to spend the evening: Ideally it will be quiet and comfortable, with splashes of beauty and perhaps some chocolate or other special treats.
  • Communicating with others in your household: Clearly and graciously, let other household members know what space you will be using during the class. Explain how very grateful you will be to them for respecting your class time by not interrupting you!
  • Gathering your materials: You will want your journal (or something to write on if you don't have a journal) and any documents sent to you prior to the class.
  • Preparing for our Zoom calls: Set up your laptop or tablet in a place where it can remain plugged in for the duration of the call so that you don't get disconnected due to a dead battery. Adjust your device so approximately one-third of your upper torso and your head show on the screen. When the camera is further away, it is difficult to see your facial expressions and when it is closer, it is challenging to see your body language. Choose a spot where light from a window or lamp shines on your face. Avoid having your device's camera pointed toward a strong source of light; your face will be darkened and others will have a harder time seeing you. If you have never been on a Zoom call before, please download the free necessary software at https://zoom.us/download sometime before retreat day. You will receive a link to join the group Zoom one day prior to each class session.
