Workshop to help develop spiritual senses

KAPAA — The program, “Developing Your Spiritual Senses,” will be presented by Sister Barbara Jean Brown at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Kapaa All Saints Episcopal Church and Preschool.

This experiential presentation will look at ways in which we can better listen for the movement of the spirit within our lives by becoming more aware of and open to our own spiritual discernment, a press release said.

“Open the eyes of my heart, Lord,” is a song that speaks to the ability of becoming more receptive to God in the world around us.

“We can taste and see that the Lord is good,” the release said. “We can listen for the still, small voice, and we can also learn to feel the spirit holding us in a loving embrace.”

Brown, known as “Sister BJ,” is co-founder of an Episcopal religious community called Anamchara Fellowship. She attends St. James Episcopal Church, Millcreek, in Wilmington, Delaware. She is also the executive director of the Interfaith Resource Center, a lending library serving all of Delaware and Eastern Shore, Maryland. She holds a degree in theology from Marian College, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and a master’s diploma in Celtic Christianity from The University of Wales, Lampeter, Wales.

Brown has been an Episcopal Religious for 43 years. Her ministry over these years has ranged from parish and diocesan ministry for children and youth, being a retreat and conference leader, as well as being a traveling author of Christian mystical tradition, called “Convents, Jails and Other Tales,” as well as a book that can be used for Lenten study called “Six Smooth Stones.”

The presentation is free and the public is welcome.
