APRIL & MAY 2021:
Melinda Davidson once again invites us to her beautiful wellness experience, Nourish: Wholehearted Being and Living. Especially now, we all need experiences that nourish us, with spiritual richness, community, and healing. Melinda’s creative adaptations to her Nourish program will enable us to experience all of these blessings in a safe, “virtual” manner, observing current social distancing guidelines.
Nourish is a unique, deeply spiritual 2-part experience that includes:
1) One individual Reiki session with Melinda, who is a certified Reiki practitioner. Reiki’s healing, integrative power can be experienced using a “no direct touch” technique. A Reiki healing session can be conducted remotely via an internet or phone connection. Alternatively, Melinda can provide a private space (with social distancing) on her beautiful outdoor patio. Individual, tailored-to-comfort sessions, alongside a pre-consult and post-consult, can be scheduled with Melinda during the month of April. Dates are currently open for booking; Melinda will contact you after registration.
2) A one-time virtual interactive cooking class on Saturday, May 1, 10:00am-1:00pm. You’ll meet in community via zoom, as you learn healthy cooking strategies and prepare nourishing foods in your own kitchen. The virtual gathering will provide time to engage with other participants as you savor new tastes, textures, and conversations together.
Registration: $120 (includes Reiki, the cooking experience, and a $20 donation to the ministries of CSE). You may register here.

NEW 2021 Series:
Mondays 5:00-6:00pm via Zoom
April 12 & May 10
Discovering our own complicity in historic, systemic racism is deeply troubling. Brave Spaces brings conversation partners together to learn about race theory, to uncover new voices from the past and present, and to live out beliefs more faithfully. We’ll meet monthy in community to learn and to support each other on a life-long journey of being anti-racist. We’re engaging in action to learn increasingly honorable forms of allyship. Being an ally requires those of us who have privilege and power to engage in self-reflection, learning, and action to support and to stand in solidarity with those who are experiencing racism in our community. We hope you’ll consider joining us as we move forward into allyship and action.
PRACTICES OF WELLBEING

Join Sallie and CSE Team guests to identify your signature strengths and explore wellbeing practices including social connection, gratitude, self-compassion, meditation, movement, and savoring.
