Join us at Creative 360 for this powerful presentation by Cathrine Abuamsha of Beit Jala, Palestine. Cathrine is a 24 year-old Palestinian woman who is of the Greek Orthodox faith tradition. She has faced a lifetime of Occupation as a Palestinian. Catherine will describe the daily life of a Palestinian in the Occupied Territories and the non-violent resistance movement in face of the military Israeli Occupation.
Born in Bethlehem, Catherine has faced a lifetime of Occupation as a Palestinian. Her father is a YMCA director in the Bethlehem area. Her mother is an English teacher. Her siblings have a wide variety of vocations—from Civil Engineering to Business. And Cathrine, herself, is in training to be a lawyer. She is also part of the youth ecumenical movement in Palestine.
Cathrine has trained with the Youth Ecumenical Institute of the Middle East, involving youth from seven Arab countries in choosing to be open to the experiences, cultures and witnesses of other Christians. She comes to Midland as a Mission to the U.S.A. (M.U.S.A.) Mission Partner prepared to talk about both the issues all Arab Christians face in their respective contexts, as well as the particular issues facing Palestinian Christians today in light of the Israeli Occupation.

“Yoga is a gift I give myself.” ~ Patty Schmidt, Kripalu Yoga Student
Dates: 11/05/2016, Times: 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
In this Enneagram workshop, we will explore tools for observing and working with our personality patterns – our automatic, usually unconscious, way of seeing and responding to life. These habit patterns help us survive. They can also be limiting by constricting our life energy and keeping us from seeing new, more flexible solutions to life’s challenges.
The dynamic Enneagram system of personality describes nine different ways people view and react to the world and provides a path to living with more freedom out of our deepest values. If you are new to the Enneagram system, please consider attending the October 15 workshop Nine Ways of Seeing: The Enneagram as a Powerful Tool for Understanding Your Self and Others to gain a context for this more advanced workshop.
With Bernie Van Dort, a certified teacher in the Enneagram Professional Training Program of Helen Palmer and David Daniels and an interfaith spiritual director.
Saturday, November 5 / 12:30 – 4:30 pm / $30 by 10/7 – $40 after 10/7
