Living Compass Faith & Wellness Series

A joint offering from Otey Parish and the Beecken Center

The Living Compass Faith & Wellness series takes participants on a journey to determine strengths and deficiencies in their spirituality, including aspects of which one may not always recognize as spiritual practice. Engaging in a series of six facilitated conversations which move the group individually and together toward spiritual wellness, participants work through a guidebook on developing wholeness through the Gospel.

Karen Meridith, interim director of the Beecken Center and executive director of Education for Ministry (EfM), and Otey curate the Rev. Regan Schutz will facilitate this series starting October 4. The group will meet at Otey Memorial Parish Wednesday nights from 5–6:30 p.m., October 4 through November 15 (skipping November 1). The cost is $10 per participant (scholarships are available).

Living Compass attends to the “longing to be whole” that exists within us all. “Wellness and wholeness,” Living Compass founder the Rev. Scott Stoner posits, “begins with, and flows from, authentic spirituality, purpose, and meaning.” At Living Compass, he continues, “we believe in the healing and restorative power of authentic conversation. Through such conversations, Christ’s love is made incarnate: we hear the voice of Christ in the voice of others.”
