For the Next 7 Generations
Event title: Earth Based Ways of Prayer: Connecting to the Light Grid
This event is an informational session about the Center for Sacred Studies and its Online Ministerial Training Program
What does it mean to be dedicated to the next 7 generations on each step of our daily walk? How do we build peace and community in the fires of these times?
The Center for Sacred Studies is an international community of students and practitioners of active peace building and spirited prayer. One of the Center's beloved programs is the Ministry Training Program.
Becoming a Minister of Prayer through the Center for Sacred Studies (CSS) prepares one to assist others as they move through the many transitions of life. Directed study creates the opportunity to explore specific methodologies, practices, theories, traditions, beliefs, and philosophies, as well as allowing for the integration of individual spiritual experiences. In addition to developing the skills and knowledge to act as a support to others, this process is designed to enlighten an individual’s practice of worship and daily living—for the purpose of living life as a “walking prayer”.
Individuals who successfully complete the course of training can be ordained as a Minister of Prayer and will be qualified to conduct ceremonies, facilitate study groups, and mentor others in the process of spiritual growth unique to each individual.
Join us on the Portland stop of this ministry road trip (bound for Northern California) where several ministers are going to support the yearly retreat for ministers actively in the Program. Our evening will include a slideshow of the Center for Sacred Studies Ministry Program, storytelling from WestCoast-based ministers, space for Q&A and the offering of a blessing ceremony.

Rev Sonja Marcinek (Eckville, Alberta, Canada):
Minister of Walking Prayer, I am so very grateful to the Centre for Sacred Studies and for the teachings I received through the Ministry Training Program. It deepened my Connection with Mother Earth and all her Beings. The best decisions I ever made was to be part of such an amazing community.
Rev Joy Welke (Yakima, WA):
Minister of Walking Prayer, attending CSS school was one of the greatest things I have ever done for myself. I love my school and the amazing community that encapsulates it. The first wedding I officiated was a double ceremony. I was privileged to be able to marry my niece and her girlfriend and my nephew and his girlfriend in a double ceremony on my brothers land. A very special day for me.
