"The success of an intervention depends on the interior condition of the intervener." (William O’Brien) Is this true?  If it is, it could be read to say, “The success of a church depends on the interior condition of its leadership.”  How are we as leaders (whether paid or lay)
- attending to our interior journeys of faith, healing and transformation? 
- mindfully support the congregations we are serving?

This workshop will explore the theme of the leader's interior condition and will consider four foundational spiritual disciplines for healthy church leadership: Meditation; Lectio Divina, the Gift of Paying Attention, and Acceptance Prayers.

Reflections from the last workshop:

"This was just what I needed - will be recommending to colleagues"

"Honestly can't think of a thing [to improve the workshop]"

"This workshop was a true gift for me, in God's wonderous timing"

"Concrete resources and guides for prayer practices and disciplines"

"I loved practicing the practices instead of just learning the theory"
