We’ve all heard these flight attendants’ instructions: “Should there be a change in cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the ceiling. If you are traveling with a child, please put your own mask on first before helping the child with their mask.”
The truth communicated here is that if we don’t make sure we are connected to the source of life and breath for ourselves, we won’t be much help to anyone else!
In this thoughtful conversation, Ruth Haley Barton will help us explore how a leader can be strengthened at the soul level, even in the midst of crisis, so we can continue to be a source of life for others.
In this conversation you will:
Gain helpful perspectives on spiritual leadership in the midst of the current crisis
Learn how to assess the state of your soul now and for the long haul
Explore spiritual practices that can keep us spirituality grounded even when everything around us is changing

Ruth has been a student, practitioner, and thought leader in the area of Christian spirituality and formation for over 20 years. When she founded the Transforming Center with a few like-minded souls in December of 2002 it was based purely on a shared desire to experience deeper levels of transformation in Christ’s presence so they could discern and do the will of God. What has happened since then surprises her every day! A seasoned spiritual director, teacher, and retreat leader, Ruth was trained at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation and the Loyola University Chicago Institute for Pastoral Studies and holds a doctor of divinity from Northern Seminary. She has served on the pastoral staff of several churches and is the author of numerous books and resources on the spiritual life.
