Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 3: The Stirrings Of Compassion: Caring For One Another
In "Spirit of Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Reflection. You may wish to set aside some time to reflect on your personal experiences and understanding of spiritual care and compassion. Either individually or together, co-leaders can use the workshop activities to spark and structure your reflection. Doing so will prepare you to explain and lead the activities.
Practice. Setting aside some moments to pray, to meditate, or to envision your good intentions for the workshop can help you to center yourself before you begin leading. A centered leader who is present and responsive while facilitating is likely to lead an effective workshop.
