‘Siloam’ Taster Session, Saturday 14 August 2021, 9.30am-11am
(In-person & Zoom event)

We are planning a taster session for the 44th Siloam Program for the Formation of Spiritual Directors that will begin in 2022. This will be held at our Centre in Malvern as well as via Zoom on Saturday 14 August from 9.30am-11am AEST. The event will be an opportunity for a gentle exploration of the Siloam Program and who we are at Heart of Life. Book here to attend. Feel free to encourage others to join with us.

Shining our Light – Is Social Media Your Thing?
We have spent some time in the last 12 months exploring how we can highlight our programs and reflection days. We have also been considering what opportunities there are for growing the Heart of Life community. We are now looking for a volunteer who has an interest in social media to join us. The commitment would be a couple of hours per week. The role is to develop Heart of Life’s social media presence as a resource for spiritual directors and those on a spiritual journey. We have started looking at this via our Facebook page in the last few weeks.  If this sounds like you, please contact Clare, our Relations Manager.

We’re Looking for a Mentor
On the same theme, we are looking for someone who, along with a passion for spirituality and an affinity with Heart of Life, has expertise in marketing. We want to develop our skills so that we can present Heart of Life in its best light to the world. We want to tell our story with heart and professionalism. We have a small budget and are looking for someone who can mentor our small team for the next 12 months to enable Heart of Life to more skillfully and professionally market its own programs. Please contact Cecilia, our Business Manager, for more information.

Support for Alumni – Group Supervision
We will commence a new supervision group in September 2021. Limited places are available. Please contact Susanah, our Secretary, to join. The group will meet once a month for approximately one hour and will be fully facilitated by a Heart of Life supervisor. The cost will be $40 per session.

An Alumni Opportunity
Are you interested in being a part of Heart of Life’s future work in schools? The Centre is providing spirituality workshops to the staff of Emmanuel College in Point Cook on 13 August 2021. If you would like to attend this day with a view to working with us in future in schools, please contact Rita, our Spiritual Liaison Manager, for more information.
