REGISTER HERE

MORNING KEYNOTE from 9:30 am - noon

Business and Spirituality with Kevin Hancock

Kevin will explore the topic of Business and Spirituality (defined ‘broadly’) in a morning session followed by Q&A, facilitated by Rev. Colleen Myers.  What opportunities can exist to integrate spirituality into the workplace of the future?  Can this be a new goal for a progressive organization to improve the lives of the people who work there as well as add true societal value? Concepts discussed include: what it means to have a “safe place at work” where everyone feels safe being themselves and saying what they think; the role of the individual within a healthy community or organization; restoring balance in the work place where work is important but not all consuming and part of a balanced life; “holding power but not using it” where decisions involve all voices and leadership includes restraint. Kevin will also share his personal journey of how literally losing his voice to a rare disease forced him to find a new way of communicating and leading his employees.

AFTERNOON ‘BREAKOUTS’ from 1:30 - 4:30 pm (choose one each of two sessions when you register)

Using Art & Poetry to Engage Your Entrepreneurial Spirit with Kate Cheney Chappell

What are the values you hold dear? Are they reflected in the work you do? Do you dream of starting your own enterprise (for profit or nonprofit) that clearly reflects these values?  Through experiential exercises, visual artist and award-winning entrepreneur Kate Cheney Chappell will help you clarify your values and discover ways to incorporate them into your workplace, whether you have your own company or work for a larger group. Chappell created “connecting exercises” at Tom’s of Maine (the company she co-founded with her husband Tom) that began each meeting with a poem and personal reflection. Using poetry, art, journaling, and active listening you will gain a greater insight into your deep values and how they can imbue your worklife.

B-Corps: Aligning your Business with your Values - Jennifer Hatch from ReVision Energy

The “B” stands for “Benefit” Corporation and denotes that a business has committed itself to a defined set of non-traditional business practices that benefit employees, customers and the broader community by creating a positive impact on society and the environment. Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment).  Jen Hatch from ReVision Energy will take you through what it means to be a B-Corp, a mission driven company that makes a substantial effort to embody values in every interactions with customers, with suppliers, with the community and of course also with each other.

Spirituality and Human Resources with Mike Miles

What does it mean to welcome spirituality into the workplace?  How does that happen, and what are the implications? In this workshop, we will explore spirit in the workplace and how it may be addressed within Human Resources.

The Spirit of Your Gifts with Rev. Laurence Miller

How do you make what you love work? How do you develop a business, non-profit or chaplaincy that is informed by Spirit and your particular gifts?  Join Laurence as he shares his particular journey and personal gifts to assist you in the business of your spiritual journey.

The Heart of Manifesting in Business with Andrea Ferrante

Often financial well being and spirituality are polarized in our culture. That can influence our thinking and leave us wondering how to stay in alignment with our spiritual values and still be prosperous. Understanding the art of manifesting is helpful in the journey toward actualizing our work and opening the door to receiving what we long for in our lives at the same time. This break out session will explore the art of manifesting as a birthright to help you create your version of wealth while aligning with what matters most to you.

Telling Your Story with Leigh Tillman

Stories conjure our humanness, foster connection, and compel us.  At the very essence of all our work there are stories.  From messaging to requesting support, to motivating ourselves as a team, we are telling stories everyday.  Explore how to tell your individual or collective story effectively and meaningfully.

An Open House with Rev Helen Rousseau: The Healing Power of Writing

Monday from 5:30 PM - 7 PM
at ChIME, 302 Stevens Avenue, Portland, Maine 04103

An Open House for prospective students and the curious.  Join author Rev Helen Rousseau (ChIME Class of 2015) in exploring writing and chaplaining.  A member of ChIME's Faculty will also be there to answer your questions.  RSVP suggested but not required at admin@chimeofmaine.org or 207-347-6740.

This workshop will focus on the transformative power of writing
to heal from life's wounds and move on to healthy and mindful living. It is
different from journal writing which records daily events, or is used as a
way to find clarity.  The participants respond to prompts which often
connect with deep places in the memory or the heart from which they often
write feelings or stories they didn't know they had in them.  It can be a
voyage of discovery as well as affirmation.

CHRISTIANITY

$75 fee; registration required; Contact ChIME at admin@chimeofmaine.org or Call 207-347-6740.

Join ChIME students as they hear from Sr. Anne McCarthy, OSB, who will explore and discuss her experiences in modern Christian faith traditions, sacraments and social action: 

The Christian sacraments of initiation, which are central across denominations, can be powerful experiences for prayer and reflection. Anointing of the sick can be a helpful end of life ritual for the individual as well as for family and loved ones. To experience sacrament and ritual as Christian prayer experience, we will follow the model of the ancient teacher, St. Gertrude the Great of Helfta.

We will enter into prayer and spiritual practice with the elements of baptism and also anointing of the sick: we will pray with water, blessed oil, with laying on of hands, and with fire.  These accessible prayer experiences may be helpful for practicing Christians as well as for Christians and non-Christians not currently practicing with a religious community.   

Anne McCarthy, OSB, holds a MA in Theology from St. John’s University, Collegeville in monastic studies and completed Shalem Institute’s program, “Leading Contemplative Prayer Groups and Retreats.” She coordinates Benedictines for Peace in Erie, PA and is on staff at Benetvision (www.joanchittister.org ) and Monasteries of the Heart (www.monasteriesoftheheart.org). She leads retreats for a variety of community on themes of nonviolence, the journey from fear to love, monastic spirituality, Long involved in peace and justice ministry, she serves on the board of the Monastic Interreligious Dialogue internationally. She lives at Mary the Apostle House in Erie.
