Spiritual, Mindful, Communal
There will plenty of opportunity to connect with people in Chaplaincy from many perspectives. It will also be a haven suited to people of many traditions and beliefs. There will be times of stillness, reflection, worship and gentle movement and exercise.
A key element is giving plenty of space within the programme for chaplaincy staff to present details of their own practice: we are inviting you to offer a contribution in one of the following ways:
Poster: preparing a poster to exhibit and discuss?
Ignite: give a 5 minute talk with 20 slides?
Campfire: present for 10-15 minutes and then become facilitator for another 15 minutes?
Reading group: nominate a reading (article, report, book) as a stimulus for discussion?
Walkshop: give a short introduction. On laminated cards questions are given and people are encouraged to walk and dialogue;
Workshop: of varying lengths and styles.
Alternatives: if you have an idea for a session not represented here, then please suggest your own.
