Emotional Mindfulness Meditation Group

March 30, 2017 at World Tree Healing in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=iAzq9JrBODeK5Qjat2q4to

This is a weekly group that meets on Thursdays. The intention of the group is to allow people to get to know their emotions, release old pain and resentments, get in touch with their intuition, release unwanted patterns, and utilize the power of their emotional resources.

Each meeting will start with a check-in, followed by a guided body-awareness and emotional-body-awareness meditation. Elmo is a firm believer in the collective unconscious, and unspoken reasons that certain people step into the same room at the same time. The intentions will depend on what has been brought up during check-in. Sometimes the focus will be a general emotional mindfulness intention. Sometimes it will be more focused, such as on gratitude, or Love, or grief. The meeting will end with another check-in and grounding, centering, and shielding to prepare us to walk out the door feeling safe.

Payment is donation-based, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This is a safe space for all gender, romantic, sexual, and personal identities and expressions.

Elmo is currently in the Counseling Psychology Master’s program at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She specializes in emotional wellness, which plays a significant role in our lives, including our ability to achieve goals, give and receive love, career success, creativity, community work, and has a huge physiological effect on our bodies.

Convocation 2017 – Bending Toward Justice

April 26, 2017 at St. James Cathedral, Chicago in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=w3QD0PqUOoJKRlUzLM19iO

JOIN US Wednesday, April 26, when the Bexley Seabury community will assemble to recommit to praying and acting for justice. Our 2017 Chicago Convocation, “Bending Toward Justice,” will gather students, alums, supporters, faculty, and staff for worship, teaching-learning, and fellowship at St. James Commons, 65 E. Huron, Chicago, home to the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago.

We are pleased to welcome three compelling guest faculty members who promise to challenge and inspire us.

A former Washington, D.C. police captain and Episcopal priest, the Rev. Dr. Gayle Fisher-Stewart founded the Center for the Study of Faith in Justice in response to the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The center studies the intersection of faith and justice in society and provides concrete steps to help churches live into the mission of Jesus. Fisher-Stewart is associate rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Washington, DC.

Bexley Hall alumnus the Rev. Canon John Floberg is supervising priest for three Episcopal congregations at Standing Rock Sioux Nation and canon missioner for the Diocese of North Dakota. Leader of the Episcopal Church’s support to water protectors at Standing Rock, Floberg organized a national call to serve that drew more than 500 interfaith clergy and lay ministers to Standing Rock in November 2016. Floberg serves on the 21-member Executive Council of the Episcopal Church.

Kenji Kuramitsu is a writer and Master of Divinity student at Chicago’s McCormick Theological Seminary. A child of two police officers, he co-created the popular Theology of Ferguson and #StayWokeAdvent anthologies, and recently authored a booklet of “uncommon prayers” dedicated to the movement for black lives. Kenji serves on the national board of directors of the Japanese American Citizens League and the Reformation Project,which furthers LGBTQ inclusion in the church.
