Fostering a Desire-Focused Sexuality: A Free Online Seminar
Women, wouldn’t it be great to have less shame, guilt, and disappointment in our sexuality? Have you ever wondered how being a sexual being impacts your spirituality or vice versa?
Join Amy Hammett, a licensed mental health counselor and spiritual director, as she leads a non-prescriptive workshop exploring the sexuality of cis-women and Christian spirituality through the lens of desire. This workshop is part of Amy’s integrative project for her Year Two of study in Wisdom Tree Collective’s School of Spiritual Direction. It will offer a combination of education, discussion, and self-reflection on subjects such as body awareness, intimacy, pornography, and the like.
Wednesday, June 14th, 5:00-6:30pm Central Time

“Holy Watching”: The Spiritual Practice of Dreamwork
July 22-23 2023
How might you become a “holy watcher” when it comes to your nighttime dreams?
Join us as we ground our learning in the Tree of Life and the story of King Nebudchadnezzar’s dream then practice basic skills of being a “holy watcher” of our dreams through dreamwork and dreamplay.
A short video will be provided before the retreat to explain the nuts & bolts of dreamwork as a spiritual practice and how to remember and record a dream.
Discover how to watch for wisdom being offered to you at night. Leave with new tools and a packet of materials to help you continue to cultivate this spiritual practice of “dreamwork as holy watching.”
