We Are Relational People

 

FORMING RELATIONSHIPS 
Engaging in Intentional Conversations

We engage in the relational practice of listening deeply to one another and sharing our stories to discover common experiences and threads weaving our histories together. We build trust as we talk with our neighbors, co-workers, friends, people different from us. We create bigger space for community conversation and action. Read more about intentional conversations. 

ATTENDING TO THE PUBLIC DIMENSIONS IMPACTING OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS 
Uncovering the Bigger Picture

We do not stay stuck in our personal stories. We become aware of the public systems, mindsets, institutions that have and are impacting our lives and act collectively to cultivate more equitable, diverse, thriving neighborhoods and cities.
 


SACRED PRESENCE TEAM

The Leaven Community Sacred Presence team continues the long tradition of sending forth members to the community in a ministry of caring and comfort. Our mission is: To identify and be a sacred presence to those among the Leaven Community (members, participants, and friends) who are

  • grieving
  • vulnerable
  • isolated from community
  • experiencing life's hardships, struggles and pressuree
  • in the midst of life transition

If you are interested in being on this team or would like sacred presence support, contact Dory: doryschutte@gmail.com (503) 704-5012 or Mary Beth: mbweave@gmail.com (503) 502-3750.

 We build trust and deepen relationships as we awaken to the interconnection of our passions, pressures and dreams.
