I spent many years serving as children/youth pastor as well as teaching adults. I loved designing classes and retreats. I learned facilitation skills through Leadership Knoxville. After attending my first CCR retreat with John Fenner and Karen Jackson in 2011, a seasonal series, I knew that facilitating retreats that invite soul exploration in a supportive, open-hearted process was my calling. I enjoy finding poems, songs, objects and pictures that fit together to create a sensory rich retreat. My mentor retreat with Debbie Stanley included 2 hours soaking up, journaling and sharing about our gleanings from Ben Long’s Prodigal fresco, working dough to make pizzas and movie clips from Stranger Than Fiction. Who knew movie characters could help us discern what is and isn’t an open/honest question!
Books about "tips, tricks, and techniques" tend to leave me cold; telling your story truly and well is more than enough for me. When you share your story of struggle, you offer me companionship in mine, and that's the most powerful soul medicine I know.
