Additional Workshops

From Performance to Transformance
Wednesday, October 10, 10 a.m.
Presenter: Suan Heinrichs, Unity of the Hills Music Director
This workshop is to aid spiritual leaders and ministers of music at Unity churches. They will sing like angels, play music like professionals they are, and wear halos the entire time.

Clay BoykinGetting Men Engaged
Wednesday, October 10, 10 a.m.
Presenter: Clay Boykin
I have come to believe that the moment men connect on a spiritual idea or move from their head and into their heart something special occurs. An unspoken link joins them on a higher plane than the mere words they express. It is like the clear vibrational tone from a crystal bowl resonating through us.

This workshop will help leaders to develop a fellowship wherein men pause to touch into the essence of Spirit within themselves, and to recognize and connect with other men on a slightly higher plane than they otherwise might.

Improvisation for Limitlessly Inspired Leadership
Wednesday, October 10, 6 p.m.
Presenter: Sarah Marie Curry
In this introduction to art of improvisation, participants will learn basic concepts of improv to increase their mental flexibility, equanimity and playful spirit. This class will focus on how to improve and discover inspiration with ease and give the participant an introspection into the behavioral science of the brain. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to say! That’s the whole point.
