Description of ActivityDistribute 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.
