Spiritual Directors International 2011: Cultivating Compassion

Registration for the Spiritual Directors International 2011 Conference on Cultivating Compassion in Atlanta April 28-May 1, 2011 is now available!

There are always lots of wonderful reasons to attend.  This year Betsey Beckman and I will be presenting the Friday night Plenary Session on Cultivating the Elements of a Compassionate Heart:

The elements of earth, wind, fire and water have long been celebrated by sacred traditions as expressions of the divine. Join Betsey Beckman, MM, and Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, to actively participate in a variety of hands-on expressive arts experiences—both reflective and playful!—such as movement, song, image, story, and poetry. These modalities are enlivening and renewing in the moment, and can be easily adapted when you offer spiritual direction with your spiritual directees.

Consider joining us in the cultivation and celebration of compassion through nature and the arts!
