Intentional Spirituality: Exploring My Growing Edge
Are you interested in having altSpirit facilitate a single day or ongoing group on spiritual or economic practices? Contact us for more information.
Many of us get caught in continuing to do what we have always done, whether it is at work, with our friends and family, or in our interactions with the world at large. We become focused on solving the problems that come up and feel like most of what we are doing is reacting. We would like to find more meaning in what we are doing or to try to do some new things entirely. How can we allow ourselves to explore different possibilities, ones that might allow us to begin living into a new dream of our future? In these Intentional Spirituality materials, we present a semistructured process to enable this reimagining.
These guiding materials have been honed over hours and hours of experience in a variety of settings. The way you will approach your goals is informed by the principles of Appreciative Inquiry. The various exercises are based on effective educational practices. And the content is rooted in the experience and research of experts in the field.
This multisession module provides time for you and your group members to reflect on your spiritual life in a way that creates a path forward. Utilizing the Four D’s of Appreciative Inquiry (Discovery, Dream, Design, and Destiny), it establishes both the understanding and skill sets needed to engage in ongoing Intentional Community.
How would your life change if you came together and talked about how you could make a difference in your current community, in your current life?
This is a place I can foster conversations that matter to me.
This is a method that helps me connect my being to my doing.
I am more fully present and self-aware.
The underlying aspects of Intentional Groups:
Sharing our own important stories
Exploring a range of practices appropriate to the group
Listening to ourselves and others
Setting intentions in our lives and supporting each other in moving toward them.
The process is rooted in the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, and influenced by many other sources.
