“Discover Your Wisdom, Change Your World” – Seena Frost, creator/founder of SoulCollage®

Enter a spiritual journey of play and wonder to awaken the often fragmented pieces of your soul. Choosing patterns and images, a process of creating a personal, collaged deck of cards will reveal your multi-dimensional life story to explore your inner self. Learn the basics of SoulCollage® and be immersed in images and reflection. Using scissors, glue sticks and images, this is a time of play, meditation, creativity and self-discovery. No artistic skills required. Supplies will be provided. If you have favorite images you want to cut up (photocopies work also), please bring them. If you are looking for a way to recycle old magazines and calendars, please bring them. Most of all, please bring a sense of curiosity and imagination, and a willingness to play and explore.     Facilitated by: Stephanie Warfield, Seton Cove Educator and SoulCollage® facilitator. To register, contact Wendy Valdez (admin@staopen.org).

Trigger & Emotions  in Parenting (Guest Speaker Carrie Contey, Ph.D.)

Tuesday, October 21th, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, free for St. Andrew’s members, $25 for general public
In St. Andrew’s Sanctuary

One of the biggest surprises of parenthood is the amount and depth of emotions growing people feel. And what that evokes in the parents.

During this talk we will:
• Explore a new way of thinking about the purpose of emotions
• Fill your tool box with healthy ways of being with your children when they are in the midst of big emotions
• Develop a plan to care for yourself and others in the moments when you are triggered
• Gain skills for teaching your growing people emotional intelligence

Highly interactive, this two-hour workshop allows parents to explore the messaging they received and clarify the model they want to provide to their family. If you have little people in your life, you don’t want to miss this!  Free for the congregation of St. Andrew’s, $25.00 for the general public.
