    An online experiential exploration of what it feels like to be more fully present both individually and collectively in the complex role of the clinical chaplain.

    This NCTS-West 2020 builds upon events held in 2018 (The Ever-Present Others: Applying Group Relations Learning to Improve Clinical Pastoral Care) and 2019 (BART for Chaplains – Navigating the Dynamic Field of Chaplaincy Service) co-sponsored by CPSP and GREX, the West Coast Affiliate of the A K Rice Institute for the Study of Social Systems.

    These previous in-person gatherings focused on enhancing the work of chaplains, including the instinctive ability to sense the visible and invisible yet highly influential dynamics of groups (e.g., families and interdisciplinary teams) and institutions (e.g., hospitals), and the four-system navigational tools of boundaries, authority, role and task (i.e., BART). Now, perhaps more than ever, we are aware of the underlying prerequisite of presence in the relational field of self and system, of recovering and discovering soul in our applied capacity to feel, perceive and experience subjectively.

    To adapt and continue our work together, this online gathering will embrace what is called “Indra’s web” of virtual opportunities for walking and joining together, weaving in small and large “here and now” group work, meditation, social dreaming, with shared spaces for creative expression online. You will be invited to explore and experiment with the dynamic presence in yourself and beyond yourself in service of the chaplain’s tasks. There will also be a “there and then” review with application of what you have discovered about the potential of clinical chaplains in your individual work within larger systems.

    No prior experience is necessary. Space is limited to 42 participants so sign up early. As if it were a residential event, participants agree to be present at all sessions of this NCTS.

    THE STAFF
