Bread of Life
Soul-Tending Me
mbership

                  Connecting with others who share a unique call                  while supporting development of open source resource sharing
for the regional community of soul-tenders.

Our Deep Calls to Deep program in partnership with Mercy Burlingame brings the Membership Program to the Bay area.

Our Membership
is designed to support those who engage the world as
non-profit leaders, spiritual directors, case managers, therapists, social workers, leaders of faith communities, chaplains, mentors or other forms of ‘tending other’s souls.’

As someone in the role of providing soul care for others you can become vulnerable to ignoring your own need for depth engagement with others of similar commitment for encouragement and renewal of your own soul.

Does this feel familiar?
y        

  • You long for opportunities to go deeper with companions of like heart for mutual nourishment and inspiration.
  • You feel the added weight of engaging your calling in a time where toxicity in the culture adds stress to you and those you serve.

  • You love what you do, but it’s been too long since you’ve felt the freedom to simply sink into participation without regard for your role.

  • You find the spark that first called you to the work dimming.

Self-care is not selfish but a priority and necessity in the type of work we do. It is challenging to find and maintain meaningful connections in the midst of our roles and many responsibilities.

Your Membership     

Supports you as a 'soul-tender' and the work of Bread of Life by assisting with the development of open source resources for the regional learning community of soul-tenders.


The individual membership is $150/year and is tax deductible. Interested in an organizational membership?  Please ask. Your membership
supports our commitment to developing open source resources for the regional learning community of those dedicated to integrating principles of spiritual formation into life. We will send you a receipt for your tax records. Sign up now for 2018.

Member Gatherings

Members have access to relevant and evocative gatherings designed to deepen and support you in your life and your calling. We generally meet for a brown bag lunch on the third Wednesday of the month at Bread of Life in Sacramento and 3 times a year at Mercy Center Burlingame. One of these is our annual summer retreat for Soul Renewal of the Community of Practice. (Retreat fees are separate).

Resource Sharing

Members have access to resources developed for all gatherings. Topics in 2017 included:
  • Resistance- the Many Colored Coat
  • The Look of Forgiveness in our Lives
  • Seeding Legacy
  • Progression and Regression as a Dynamic Polarity 
  • Recognizing Triggers/ Cultivating a Non-Defended Response
  • Five Practices of the Heart for Citizen Soul-Tenders
  • And more!
In 2017 we made available the Bread of Life developed Righteous Mind reflective reading group packet to encourage local engagement of this important work on moral psychology wherever members live and serve. The 2018 packet will be based on Donna Hick's work,  Dignity: Its Essential Role in Resolving Conflict.
 
We also encourage you to share resources of potential value to others. We support an Open Source format for the tending of our world!
