Inner Compass

Women's Circle/Book Study

Starts June 12 - In Person - Binghamton, NY


"I get too caught up in my emotions and feelings."

"I start the day at peace, but then lose it all by lunchtime - or before..."

"I'm not sure I trust God - and I know I don't always trust myself..."

"I know how I want to act - but then somthing pushes my buttons and I do the opposite."  

"Sometimes I'm afraid I am letting God down."


Are you looking for a greater sense of direction and peace?

God is right here, in the middle of our muddles.

Using the book Inner Compass by Margaret Silf as the basis of our discussions, we will explore (in Silf's words):

  • how to become increasingly sensitive to God's action in our lives

  •  how to discover and live true to the very deepest desires within us

  • how to make decisions that reflect God's indwelling presence in the innermost freedom of our hearts

  • how to join our lives consciously with the life of God

The group will move at a leisurely summer pace, with two weeks between sessions to allow for time to process, integrate, and practice.   There will only be about 40 pages of reading every two weeks.  The concepts are few but powerful, and the accountability and support of the group will help us keep our attention on our intentions, and deepen our engagement with the material.

Schedule (all sessions are 6:30-8:00 pm)

6/12/14           The Where/How/Who Layers of Our Being

6/26/14              Your Unique God-Self/ What Went Wrong?

7/10/14              The Weather of Our Moods/Finding Our Way

7/24/14              Our Deepest Desires/ Fear and Attachments 

8/7/14                Detachment/ What Leads Us Forward or Astray

8/21/14              Living (Peacefully and Joyfully) in the Gap

Who is this for?  Anyone looking for a greater sense of direction and peace, and a greater sense of connection to her best self and to God.  While grounded in the Christian tradition, this class is open to all who seek the Holy One, by whatever name, and who are willing to let others explore at their own pace and as they are guided.    

What will the sessions be like?  Some discussion of the book, some guided contemplation, some inner reflection.  Something of a cross between a prayer group, a wisdom circle and a book study group.

Where are the classes held?  The classes are co-sponsored by and will be held at The Sophia Center for Spirituality, which is housed at The First Congregational Church at the corner of Front and Main Streets in Binghamton, New York.  The facility has free parking and is handicapped accessible. 

The Sophia Center is an ecumenical and interfaith place for all people seeking support on their spiritual journey.

Is registration required?  Yes - registration is required by June 5, 2014.  Contact Cheryl at cheryl [at] wingedlifecoaching.com or register right now by paying for the class, using your PayPal account or credit card:

How much does it cost?  $49, plus the cost of the book, which is available on Amazon. 

What if I can't make all the sessions?  Come anyway!  You can still get the benefit of the missed session by reading the book and working through the discussion questions for the class.  And, as all of the material is interrelated, we will be touching on most of the concepts more than once.

More questions?   Contact class leader Cheryl Lyon at cheryl [at] wingedlifecoaching.com if you have any questions. 

Cheryl is a certified life coach, spiritual companion and retreat leader.  She is also an active member of the Oxford United Methodist Church in Oxford, New York.
