Easter In Memory of Her

Holy Saturday, April 19, 2014
4-5 PM
Christ Church Cathedral
1117 Texas Ave, Houston

On Holy Saturday, in anticipation of Easter Day, we take time out to reflect and remember the women – those who followed Jesus to Jerusalem and stood beside him at the cross, burial and resurrection.

This innovative musical performance and meditation imagines the thoughts and prayers of Mary the Mother, the woman at the well, the woman with nard, Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene, as they remember their times with Jesus and endure the sorrow of the cross.

Join us, this 2nd year, for this original script and meditative hour of music.
Original script by April D. DeConick and Betty C. Adam
with composed music by Becky Baxter and Sonja Bruzauskas
with singers from the Houston Chamber Choir.

Enneagram Classes

Level 2 – Enneagram Subtypes
Friday, April 11, 2014 (12:00-4:00 pm, S-301)
There are three variations in each Enneagram type.  So there are three kinds of Ones, three kinds of Twos, etc.  Come see which Three looks like a One, which Two does not look like a Two, and how others with your same type are different from you.  Subtype differences in couples can be a bigger source of conflict than the differences between Enneagram types.

$40 Fee. For the Early bird price of $30, checks must be received three days prior to the class date.

2013 Helen Palmer Video on Enneagram Transformation

April 16, 17, and 18,  2014  (1-4pm) – Wed/Thurs/Friday. J-203
Recorded during one of Helen Palmer’s workshops in Boulder this past spring, this DVD series focuses on transformation by interviewing groups (panels) of each Enneagram type. This class is for those who have been working with their Enneagram style and want to do more serious Enneagram work. Helen Palmer’s astute insights are amazing.  The videos are fascinating, touching, and insightful.  When Bill Kerley, a local Jungian analyst and minister, saw Helen Palmer on the DVD, he said, “She is brilliant!”  Knowledge of your Enneagram type or instructor approval is required. Feel free to bring a lunch and coffee will be provided.  Night #1 – Head Center (5/6/7), Night #2 – Heart Center (2/3/4), Night #3 – Body Center (8/9/1)

$30 Fee for the entire series. For the Early bird price of $20, checks must be received three days prior to the class date.

You can repeat any session for free at future showings.
