Introduction to the Enneagram with Sarah Repoley
…Tuesdays, July 16 & August 6 at 5:30 pm
The Enneagram is a way to understand our own compulsions, motivations and behaviors, and offers a path toward healing and wholeness. The July workshop will begin with an overview of the Enneagram and the nine types it describes. We will also discuss “wing” types and how stress and/or integration can move in our lives. We will work together to type ourselves. In the August workshop we will share our experiences of living with this newfound knowledge and how understanding oneself — as well as traits and energies of the people in our lives — can be transformative. Suggested donation of $10/person, but no one turned away for lack of funds.  Sign up on the clipboard in the Hospitality Room. For more information email Sarah at [email protected].

Body Image/Body Wisdom Series for Women
…Mondays, July 22 – August 19, 6—8:30 pm
When sleeping women wake, mountains move. One of the things that can keep women asleep is shame around our bodies. Wise women, shamans, entrepreneurs, leaders, and influencers often share common struggles around accepting their bodies. Now is the time to reclaim our bodies and their wisdom regardless of shape, weight, or size. This series is for every woman who wants to love her body, is learning to love her body or already loves her body.  For women only. Email Jackie at [email protected] for details. Please sign up on the clipboard in the Hospitality Room.

Three New Board Members Begin their Terms
…Welcome Jenny, Patrick & Elizabeth
Three new Board Members began their service commitment on July 1st. They are Jenny Farthing, Patrick Fitzsimmons and Elizabeth Likis. The fourth member of the Class of 2022 is Stefanie Beierschmitt who came to the Board last year to complete the term of a member who needed to resign.  She will now serve a full term. In the coming editions of this newsletter, we will share a little information about each.  First, Jenny Farthing.  Jenny says, “I have been coming to Jubilee! for about 8 years. I volunteer for Room in the Inn and am on the Care and Compassion Team. I formally joined Jubilee! last year. I have always wanted to be a bigger part of Jubilee!. I would love to add my thoughts and my voice to help in making decisions with the Jubilee! Community. I would also like to see it continue to grow in a healthy manner. This is an important time in making decisions for our future Jubilee! minister, and it would be an exciting time to be a part of this transition.”
