Event description

Description

Join us in this joint program with The Center for Spirituality in Nature and Interfaith Power and Light DMV as we go through all the essentials for starting a regular SING in your congregation, your organization or with some like-minded friends.

Congregations in the DC area are finding that a Spirituality in Nature Group (SING) is a wonderful way to join regularly with others to awaken, deepen and mindfully live out the Spiritual connection found through nature. We know that walking on the beach, strolling along a river, or hiking through a forest, connects us with something greater than ourselves. Yet in our urbanized culture it's often difficult to find the time or space to step away from our busy lives.

The workshop, led by Beth Norcross, founding director of The Center for Spirituality in Nature, and Avery Davis Lamb, Director of Faithful Advocacy at Interfaith Power and Light DMV, will use excerpts from The Center for Spirituality in Nature's Start SINGing guide. Participants will learn the logistics of setting up a SING, discuss curriculum and itinerary, get answers to frequently asked questions and go outside to do some on-the-ground training.

After registration, a special discounted rate will be available to workshop participants who are interested in purchasing The Center for Spirituality in Nature's two comprehensive workbooks: Start SINGing: How to Form Your Own Spirituality in Nature Group and Inside Out: Practices for Going Deeper in Nature.

Though all are welcome, this workshop is based primarily on resources developed for Christian churches. We also recognize that the workshop is on the Jewish holiday Shavuot, and apologize to all for whom observance of the holiday makes it impossible to attend.

We hope you can join us! Please contact Beth Norcross or Avery Davis Lamb with any questions.


** We do not want to preclude anyone from taking the workshop due to cost. Please contact us if you have any concerns about paying for the workshop.
