Leaders are encouraged to prepare for the workshop not only by gathering supplies and reviewing the workshop's activities, but also by practicing centering, prayer, or meditation. Before the workshop, take some time to engage in a spiritual practice that helps connect you with the sacred, with the Spirit of Life, with the ground of your being. You may wish to spend extra time with that practice before you offer Spirit in Practice, allowing yourself to access the kind of groundedness or energy that you want to embody as a teacher of spiritual practices. What kind of energy do you want to share with your group? How do you want to be as a leader? Hold these questions, and your responses, in your mind as you engage in a practice that connects you with the Spirit of Life.
