Chad Harrison on Mindful Reflection and the Parenting Superhero Power

Chad lives in Loretto, Mi, with his wife Stacy and their 3 young boys.  He enjoys being outdoors whether mountain biking on single track trails, fishing in the Sturgeon river that borders his property or helping his wife with the garden and small commune of animals that she keeps.  Chad has spent his life serving other in one fashion or another as a 4thgrade teacher, car salesman, youth pastor, insurance salesman and currently as the Senior Pastor at the First Covenant Church in Iron Mountain.  

He is also an avid believer in self-reflection and honest questioning of “why we are the way we are”, which has led him to believe, that reflection truly is the parenting super-power.  He also believes that if we are willing to look inward, ask ourselves the hard questions and think objectively we can begin to recognize some of the blind spots our past has provided for us.

Dr. Barbara Below, PHD on Caring: A One Day Seminar

Barbara is a Clinical Psychologist with more than 40 years of teaching and clinical experience.  She has worked as a psychologist in settings as diverse as psychiatric hospitals, private practice, and in a Veterans Administration hospital. Now retired, as a member of the teaching faculty of the Odiyan Retreat Center in Northern California, she has worked under the direction of Rinpoche in developing the curriculum and classes for this course.  She is one of the editors of the book, ‘Caring’ . Barbara resides much of the year at the Odiyan Retreat Center in Northern California, and travels in the United States offering seminars on ‘Caring.’  

During the one-day seminar, we will explore the topic of caring and how it has importance for our lives, for the global environment, for our country and for the world’s present challenging situation. This seminar offers participants the opportunity to move from a basic understanding of the importance of caring and the development of tools and ‘qualities of caring’ towards pursuing a path of self-care and compassion.  Participants will engage in several experiential exploration exercises that increase awareness of their own need for care while they learn how to be more caring in their daily lives.

Gail Beauchamp, LMSW on Mind-Body Relaxation Response

Gail has been practicing in the Mental Health field for over 30 years. She received her Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Michigan State University and has practiced in a wide variety of settings, including mental health centers, hospitals, and clinics.

Gail will be illuminating our tendencies towards stress and offering Mindful Relaxation as an effective way to combat that stress. The relaxation response increases alpha brain wave activity and lowers blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate, metabolic rate, oxygen consumption and anxiety. This practice produces a greater sense of wellbeing and an increase in quality of life. Gail will be offering a practice that is accessible and attainable to help you learn to shift into a more relaxed state in the face of stressful situations.

Robelle Degenaer on Women and Spirituality

Robelle will be sharing the connectedness of all Faith systems and our ability to live in accordance to the Faith that speaks most clearly to us. Speaking to the sacred from many perspectives guides us all towards a sense of the common human experiences, eliciting a sense of grounded connection versus an isolation in our spiritual path.

Robelle connects to her diverse lineages of Polish, French, and Ojibwa descent, finding that regardless of our varying walks of life, we have similarities that outweigh our differences. Spirituality is unique to each and every person, yet the common threads of sacred connection, purpose, and recognition of the transpersonal, braid throughout our experiences allowing us to find common ground within our differences.
