KAREN HILFMAN MILLSON – KEYNOTE SPEAKER, WORKSHOP LEADER,
THEOLOGICAL REFLECTOR AND PREACHER AT ANNUAL MEETING OF BAY OF QUINTE CONFERENCE
The gifts, passions and focus of Karen Hilfman Millson’s work around the key to Circle Culture being Authentic Connections aligns with our theme this year of “Plugged In”.
After 25 years of thoroughly enjoying congregational ministry Karen now shares her energy and vision through Workshops, Retreats, Authentic Connection Life Coaching (one on one or in groups), and Facilitating Significant Circle Conversations both within the Church and beyond. All her work is rooted in her desire to develop and deepen the characteristics of Circle Culture which she describes as a Reawakening of Ancient and Alternative Wisdom.
The key to Circle Culture is connection to Authentic Self within us and in our relationships with others. The problem is that our Authentic Self, found in the place deep in our core where we remember that we are a beloved child of God with unique and important gifts to share with the world, gets covered over by external expectations and judgments which disconnect us from the gift of who we are, disconnect us from the power and presence of God within us. When we re-connect to our essence and to the power of eternal love in ourselves and in others – the world is changed by our awakening.
Through her work with Small Group Ministry, Karen has seen a different culture emerge as a result of authentic connections. She calls that emerging culture Circle Culture.
