Join Spiritual Director, Yoga Instructor, and Author, Whitney R. Simpson for Self-Care & Prayer with the Breath
Wednesday, Sept. 16th, 10-11am
Using tools from her book, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit, Whitney will offer a time of guided listening with the body that includes a time of teaching on proper breathwork techniques as well as space to create your own breath prayer. This session will help you reconnect with your own breath and emphasize the importance of encouraging those around you to breathe fully and deeply.
Whitney began practicing yoga as part of her recovery after stroke and brain surgery in 2005. She was hesitant a yoga practice could ease her chronic pain. Needless to say, she was wrong. Embracing the practices of yoga and meditation have been foundational for her healing journey. Whitney recently published the devotional, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit, with Upper Room Books. She is founder of Exploring Peace Ministries (www.ExploringPeace.com) and co-owner of Bloom Yoga Studio (www.BloomYoga.Studio) in Lebanon, TN offering soul care through yoga, meditation, spiritual direction, and contemplative retreats. Whitney is a Deaconess in the United Methodist Church and is an advocate for peace and human equality, longing to create safe space for all people.
