Engaging the Enneagram as Wisdom Practice (with Jeanine Siler Jones)
Mar 12 – Mar 15 all-day

Engaging the Enneagram as Wisdom Practice
Jeanine Siler Jones
in collaboration with the Rock Point Wisdom Community

Know your conditioning so your heart can be a more faithful instrument.
~Cynthia Bourgeault

Thursday March 12 ~ Sunday March 15, 2020
Rock Point Retreat Center, Burlington, Vermont

Join us! For a practical engagement of the Wisdom lineage through the lens of the Enneagram. How can this map illuminate our habitual patterns so that we might soften our identification? How might it guide us in tracking all three centers of knowing so that we bring more of ourselves into Presence? How might we surrender more fully our attachments and habits as we shift the quality of our attention?

As we explore the potential of a more authentic and immediate relationship with life and the Divine, we will follow a Wisdom School rhythm with meditation, chant, Lectio Divina, movement and mindful work. Engaging somatic and attention practices and the Wisdom roots of the Enneagram, we will track what jams the signals around our hearts. Together we will create a walking Enneagram and let this ancient symbol teach us.

For questions and to register please contact Craig at 802-863-3431or at csmith@diovermont.org.

Cost: $420 single room; $330 shared; $250 commuter with limited scholarships available. Learn more about Rock Point at www.rockpointvt.org.

Jeanine Siler Jones, LCSW, is a therapist at www.silerjonescounseling.com in Asheville, North Carolina, has been an Enneagram teacher for 15 years and is a primary igniter of Wisdom School Southeast in the lineage of Cynthia Bourgeault. She has a Certificate in Theology from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is trained as a Wisdom infused Spiritual Director from Moravian Theological Seminary. Read more about her in Growing!

Vermont Care Partners Annual Health Equity Conference
Mar 13 all-day

VT Care Partners Invites Faith Communities to Annual Health Equity Conference, March 13

BURLINGTON, VT – Vermont Care Partners (VCP) will be hosting an annual health equity event on March 13 at the University of Vermont Davis Center in Burlington. VCP is a trade organization and advocacy group that supports 16 designated and special service agencies in Vermont for individuals with mental health conditions, substance use disorders, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.

For the past the years, the VCP conference has addressed the need to promote health equity and cultural and linguistic competence among providers and community members. Last year nearly 400 people gathered to hear speakers from around country and expand their network. This year’s event is geared toward the following goals:

Expanding participant knowledge and understanding of the impact of racism, sexism, classism, ableism, and cultural blindness on health equity and cultural competence
Promoting innovative practices and approaches that increase the inclusion of all people in the broader healthcare system
Increasing participant knowledge of peer-driven programs and approaches that promote inclusion
Expanding participant understanding of community members and organizations that also promote health equity and wellness
Increasing participant knowledge about the intersection between the policy initiatives and community practices that promote inclusion and cultural competence

To address the role of faith based organizations in the promotion of health equity, VCP has invited Sydney Hankerson, MD, from Columbia University to lead a three-hour workshop on working collaboratively with faith organizations and leaders to promote equitable access to care. Additionally, Vivian Jackson, PhD, from Georgetown will deliver a keynote address and lead a workshop on cultural and linguistic competency. Maria Mercedes Avila, PhD, will moderate a panel discussion and film screening about cultural and linguistic competence.

Longing for Belonging
Mar 28 – Mar 30 all-day

As members of a local church we know that our communities need us, and we need them. Still, it can be hard to connect to new people, or even to find them. This workshop is a chance to explore what your congregation has to offer to the community, and how to let the community know who you are.

Ideal for outreach committees, missions groups, and church leadership teams, this gathering will help you to explore new ways to create a traditional sense of belonging and consider how worship, education and formation, and outreach programs can show radical hospitality. Participants will leave with specific ideas they can implement to engage in mission and evangelism that communicates love and welcome to their immediate neighbors. Ideally, two or more members of a faith community will participate together.
