Guided Autobiography Group

With Ron Lynch

2nd and 4th Sundays 4-6 pm

City Council Ward 6 Office East Room

3202 E. 1st St. Tucson, AZ 85716
Our two-hour sessions start April 7, 2019.
Trained instructor Ron Lynch will lead the group through life themes using questions and activities to stimulate memories. Each week you will write a two-page story about a memory of your experience of the week’s theme.
Each week in the first hour, the facilitator leads the class in a discussion of the week’s theme and priming questions to stimulate memories. In the second hour, the class breaks into small groups in which everyone reads aloud what they have written on the theme of the week.
No previous writing experience is necessary. The only ”homework” is a two-page story on the theme of the week.
GAB is based on the method developed by pioneering gerontologist Dr. James Birren, USC.

This is a proven program to help you get your life story on paper by breaking it down in short, easy-to-write themes and sharing your stories with others in the class.

As you are: “good”, “bad”, indifferent; vibrant, exhausted, blah…
Your authentic self is welcome here. You’re perfect just the way you are.

Having experienced being fully seen, heard, received, thus feeling connected, refreshed and enriched.

What it is:
An oasis in the midst of every day life.

What you do:
Share your authentic self (as much as you’re willing), listen with your heart, breathe in Love, receive it, then share it with the group — including yourself.

The content…
 1. A process called “Awesome Women” In just three minutes, we are seen, appreciated, acknowledged. It’s a chance to be refreshingly truthful, to receive loving feedback, to once again stand in our own power.

2. A sweet yet potent process evolved from Kything (an ancient form of prayer), a spiritual version of Master Mind, and Miracle Circles (from Year of Miracles) that allows us to ask for what we want in our lives, open our souls to the possibilities of Life, and to receive fully.

Care of the Soul

With Dr. John Dore

2nd and 4th Sundays from 4:15 to 6 pm

City Council Ward 6 office East Room
3202 E. 1st St. Tucson, AZ 85716

for renewing the best of the human spirit
A call to community — sponsored by Sacred Space
“We have lost touch with the wisdom of our soul,” claims Thomas Moore in his book, Care of the Soul. “When soul is neglected, it appears symptomatically in obsessions, addictions, violence and loss of meaning.” He does not define soul beforehand, but offers guidance to discover it in ourselves. “Definition is an intellectual
enterprise; but the soul prefers to imagine….we know intuitively that soul has to do with genuineness and depth, as in ‘music has
soul’ or a remarkable person is ‘soulful’ Soul is revealed in attachment, love and community”, often in dark places I’d add. “By caring for the soul we find relief from our distress and
discover deep satisfaction and pleasure.”

In Moore’s approach we find that soul “accepts our human foibles, and it sees dignity and
peace as emerging more from that acceptance than from any method of transcending the human condition.” His book is a “guide offering a philosophy of soulful living and techniques for
dealing with everyday problems without striving for perfection or salvation.” This kind of spiritual life is “absolutely necessary for psychological
health.”  But this path is neither religion nor psychology, but a subtle integration of the two, using wisdom from our experience and a deep sense of the humor that often ‘saves’ us. “The gifts of the soul are: fulfilling work, rewarding relationships, personal power, and relief from symptoms. We can’t just ‘think’ ourselves
through them, because thinking itself is part of the problem.”
