ONLINE: Tuesday Restoring Balance Luncheon

Is it possible to restore life balance over lunch? We’d like to think that such mindful changes can happen in small moments, so why not at lunch? Simple, rejuvenating practices will be shared and discussed with ample opportunity to practice. Facilitated by Seton and Seton Cove staff, these mind/body/spirit practices can help us all restore that much needed life balance.

Tuesday Luncheons this Quarter:

Nov 24 - 2020: A Year for Gratefulness with Michael Krussel
This year has been unlike any other. Many of us have experienced tragedy, loss, and grief. Those who have been fortunate enough to escape such pain have likely awoken to new understanding of the injustices surrounding them. And now, as we approach the time to give thanks, we are to do so while remaining physically apart. While it would seem such circumstances leave little for which to be grateful, come explore with me why gratefulness might just be the prescription we all need.

Dec 1 - Holy Breath, Holy Fire: George Floyd and the Continuing Pentecost in Our Midst with Laura Thelander
What does the giving of the Holy Spirit in breath and fire have to do with fires of protest and the words “I Can’t Breathe?” How is the Holy Spirit moving among us today in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder and the worldwide marches unified in their call to action to undo the legacy of racial injustice in our country? Inspired by James Cone's book, The Cross and the Lynching Tree...

Dec 8 - Poem's Corner with Ginny Agnew

Dec 15 - How Poems Feel: A Workshop in Empathic Writing with Travis Helms
"Empathy is a way to connect to the emotion another person is experiencing," writes Brené Brown," it doesn't require that we have experienced the same situation they are going through." In this cultural moment, when we are asked to collectively face varying levels of displacement, isolation, and suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic and climate-related catastrophe, to reckon with realities of systemic racism and oppression in our country, and to navigate painful political polarization on a national scale, how are we to appreciate the reality of an other? How can we be with one another in our pain, and in a way that summons us to draw on our deep commonality to build together a better future?

In this one-hour workshop, we will explore the gifts that poems have to offer as containers and conduits for empathy. We will explore the ways in which poems are able to 'hold' individual experience — so that in attending to poetic witness we can let it inspire, instigate, and ultimately transform us. From close readings of our texts, we will have the chance to put empathy into poetic practice by creating our own poems. We will create a meditative, safe space, and use guided prompts to unlock sources of empathy that are always welling deep within us.
