This workshop will challenge not only the participants, but also the facilitators. There are likely to be moments when the group will feel stressed by the challenge of the activity. Remind yourself that the stress and the challenge are necessary in order for learning to take place. Prepare yourself to embrace uncertainty and to trust both what will unfold in the workshop and your ability to respond appropriately.
Using music, meditation, prayer, walking outdoors, or another familiar spiritual practice, take some time to center yourself and prepare to be fully present to the challenges, ambiguities, wisdom, and spiritual deepening as they unfold in this workshop.
