Listening to the Wisdom of Your Body: an introductory morning for parents of young children

10:00 am to 11:30 am
Tuesday 20 February 2018

This introductory morning will explore how the practice of BioSpiritual Focusing can help support the healthy spiritual and psychological growth of our children. Approaching difficult feelings and emotions in this way allows the stories that lie within to emerge. This changes how the child relates to themselves, to their families, to their teachers and to their friends. Drawing on his own experience as a parent, John Keane, European Regional Director of the BioSpiritual Institute, will share stories of how this practice can assist in guiding children to befriend difficult feelings and emotions. He will explain how this process can helped children to be more loving and gentle with their feelings and emotions, and not ignore or suppress them. John will demonstrate how to begin sharing this simple process with children in a safe and respectful manner.

Steps2Serenity: 12 Step Meditation and Prayer Evenings

8:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Wednesday 21 February 2018
(Donation)
Manresa offers an opportunity to people on twelve-step programmes to deepen their awareness of themselves as they seek to improve their conscious contact with God "as they understand him." For very many people, and especially those involved in a 12-Step Programme, the Serenity Prayer offers a vision of life that is rooted in faith, open to new possibilities, and yet serene in the face of limitations. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference. In Steps2Serenity, Manresa is offering, on the third Wednesday of each month - except in June, July and August - for those who are involved on a 12-Step Programme an opportunity, through prayerful reflection and meditation, to come to an awareness of themselves as they are and to improve their conscious contact with God as they understand him. No need to book. Just come along yourself, or a friend or anybody who you think may benefit from an evening of prayer and meditation in a safe and peaceful environment. All are very welcome.
