Study Group Format
Study Groups are formed at the invitation of an individual, a sponsoring organization, or through an online offering.
These groups are most useful for people who have participated in one or more faith traditions and seek to reflect on their work or leadership in light of faith and spirituality.
While previous or current association with a faith tradition is recommended, participants will not be asked to agree to a statement of faith in order to join.
The group begins with a 20 to 30 minute presentation, continues with time for personal reflection, and concludes with confidential sharing within the group.
Study groups are composed of six 60 to 90 minute sessions.
The topics include:
◊ Differentiating Spirituality and Religion
◊ Identifying Spiritual Needs
◊ Exploring Purpose, Calling, and Leadings
◊ Perceiving the Spiritual Nature of Work
◊ Appreciating the Diversity of Faith Expressions in the Workplace
◊ Recognizing the Spheres that Influence Faith and Work Integration
Depending on client location and preferences, study groups meet weekly, biweekly or monthly and either virtually or in-person.
Because sharing about faith and spirituality is personal and sacred, we hold the space and facilitate the discussions so each person feels valued in the context of the community.
As such, these groups are best suited for people who have the capacity to listen to others whose experience and perspectives are different from their own.
