The St. Vincent de Paul ministry is hosting a series of interactive events which will allow participants to focus on personal wellness and building connections within the community.
A key focus of these events is to allow members of the Basilica congregation and guests of the SVdP ministries to participate together, side by side.
No registration is required. Consider joining us at one, or a few or all of these sessions:
October 28 & November 4 – Malena Xuona Trueing, Play in the Presence Moment: Join us as we welcome crossing the threshold from October into November. Play in Presence is a form of creative meditation. In this workshop we will move our bodies and labor with our hands around our discoveries of sharing and listening. Our time together is an invitation to tap your creative heart and invite curiosity around the marks you make and how they have a direct relationship to the resources and tools you seek. This workshop is trauma informed and based in a variety of traditions and wisdoms.
