Steve Chase’s singular vision for education at Pendle Hill

“When I moved to Pendle Hill to start my full-time job this January as their new Director of Education, I put some time and effort into reflecting on Pendle Hill’s educational mission and my own goals. One outcome of this was to provide an overview of our ongoing educational programs and the leadings, thinking, and heart behind them. I hope people find this as useful to read as it was for me to write.” Steve Chase

Writing Your Spiritual Autobiography

Evocative exercises and group sharing in a nurturing setting allow us to remember and write about the most meaningful parts of our life’s journey. We will write of our experiences at crucial turning points and share our stories in small groups. Come with openness to the process, and leave with stories of your spiritual journey and a deep appreciation for the sacred work of sharing them.
