The healing of one’s soul comes through paying attention to what is within and holding it with compassion, as well as coming into a deep awareness of God’s loving presence. This is done in a variety of ways: silent reflection, journaling, contemplative prayer, mindfulness, Christian meditation, and taking time to interact with art, poetry, music, and nature. These paths to healing have been journeyed for centuries. Jeremiah 6:16 says, “Stand by the roads, and look and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it and find rest for your souls.”
Kim Prothro, Director of Soul Care, will instruct and guide small groups in a variety of ways, inviting participants to slow down, listen, experience, and then reflect on that experience. Come learn with others and experience grace and compassion; discover quiet and find rest for your soul, as well as practices you can continue long after the experience has ended.
Kim has a Masters in Theology (ThM) from Dallas Theological Seminary and is a trained chaplain. She has walked with many along the path of suffering in her work at Hospice of East Texas, Terrell State Hospital, and CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances. She is currently training with the Shalem Institute to Lead Contemplative Prayer Groups and Retreats. She has experienced firsthand the joy of healing that comes through mindfulness, attentiveness, and practicing the presence of God.
