Activity 4: Where Do We Go From Here?

Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

Description of Activity

Distribute Handout 1: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. Note that this handout presents an organizational structure that can help us ensure that spiritual practices are included in our lives on a regular basis.

Ask participants to take five minutes to consider the grid and to start making specific plans for the coming year. Provide pens or pencils and invite participants to fill in their grids.

After five minutes, invite participants to find a partner and share their ideas for two minutes each.

Conclude the activity by pointing out that something as concrete as this handout works well for some people and not so well for others. The handout is intended as an entry point for establishing long-term spiritual practices once this workshop series is done.

Including All Participants

Using a microphone helps more people hear your instructions. If you notice participants struggling to hear one another in their pairs, allow some pairs to leave the room and find a quieter space. If two participants require American Sign Language interpretation and you have only one interpreter, pair up those participants. If you have more than two participants needing ASL interpretation, find a second interpreter to help.
