Halfway through our first group session, we launch phase 1 of the course, beauty.  We consider how our spirits are nourished through our eyes and ears, sparking hope and imagination, worship and wonder, stillness and solitude.  We send you away to fill your minds with beauty through a carefully sequenced set of simple exercises. Four weeks later you will meet with your mentor again.  By now you are beginning to get to know one another, and are probably feeling more relaxed.  As we come together for our second group session, we review how well Phase 1 has gone, and start to introduce a new tool to keep track of our progress.
