These Wellness Workshops use a visual of an actual compass illustrating a person’s well-being in four dimensions- Soul, Strength, Heart, and Mind and how they are interconnected. The goal of Living Compass is to provide individuals with a dynamic tool that will be useful in their search for balance and wellness in their lives.
Typically these small group workshops are organized around a theme, most recently Lent and prior to that, Advent, and run for approximately 6-8 weeks with weekly meetings accompanied by a daily devotional pamphlet. All are welcome to participate in one, some, or all of the components of these workshops. Facilitator training has been undertaken by several St Mark’s parishioners, including Fr David Gibbons, and is available through the Chicago Diocese offices. We look forward to opening up future workshops to the broader Barrington community in addition to our own St Mark’s parishioners.
