A Guided Walk of the Outdoor Labyrinth at Mercy Center
Come and experience the prayer walk outdoors in the garden on the labyrinth at Mercy Center, 2300 Adeline Drive, Burlingame. We will meet at Mercy Center. Carpooling is encouraged.
St. Paul's Healing Ministry has the gift of individuals dedicated to offering the wholeness and healing a prayer walk of the labyrinth can illicit. Bev Hock, a labyrinth ministry leader and teacher, has studied the history of the labyrinth within the Christian tradition and its origins for years as well as guided others in the walk of the labyrinth. Bev is offering teaching on the labyrinth along with this opportunity to walk in community in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Mercy Center. Bring yourself, comfortable clothing, shoes suitable for walking and a bagged lunch. This is a great opportunity to experience the impact of a prayer walk while outside in God's creation.
For Lent: The Enneagram For Our Life in Christ
Ennea in Greek means “nine” and “gram” means ways
This is an ancient system that all mystical veins of the major religions have utilized as a spiritual growth tool. The Enneagram identifies nine types of thinking, feeling and behaving, which once you identify as a type allows you to become more self-observant of patterns and reactivity. One can see themselves and others with clarity and compassion. “Catching yourself in the act” of these ego-driven patterns, you can be set free with a more honest inner observer.
Along with identifying and exploring the types, we will go deeper with applying this knowledge to our spiritual journey with Jesus the Christ. From examining what prayer practice makes sense to use the scripture as our tool and as a guide into our type. Ongoing study of the Enneagram allows for a more honest self-observation, freeing us up from our ego’s being in control and leading us to living from our true self, our essence, the image God has created us to be.
