Chaplain John Hughes

Chaplain John Hughes will offer an online course, The Brambled Path, designed to teach groundedness and how to thrive from the heart in an authentic and relatable way. Using warmth and gentle humor, Hughes will lead participants through holistic approaches including the heart lock-in technique; compassionate exchange; the soothing breath with body scan; shadow work; the 3-2-1 of mystery; a holistic thinking primer; and affirmations and planning your practice. The course begins 6:30 p.m., October 11, and runs each Thursday for eight weeks.

“Our collective stress is at historic levels, with political divisiveness, climate change wreaking havoc, ongoing fallout and grief from the pandemic, and uncertainty about the future. All of this contributes to a sense, for many of us, of being overwhelmed,” Hughes says. Hughes is a certified resiliency mentor through the HeartMath Institute. He has 13 years of experience as a spiritual care provider in hospice settings and 27 years as a meditator. He’s also a long-time yoga practitioner.
