Standing in your Strength
Co-active Coaching for Clarity and Renewal
The new year is the perfect time to get in touch with the deepest parts of yourself... but it's not always easy without guidance and support from a wise teacher.
One of the joys of being a member of The Hive is getting classes tailor-made for you in your spiritual walk. This is one of those classes! Several members have asked for a writing workshop and a coaching circle and this offering will combine both with an incredible instructor, the Rev. Dr. April Stace. April is a teacher, author, coach, musician, priest, and so much more and she brings all her talents to this unique experience.
In this four-part workshop, you'll get one-on-one coaching with April to tap into your true self through writing, learning, and conversation. This is an especially great offering for those who work with others on their journeys as you'll learn some of the key principles of coaching.
Classes will be held LIVE on Zoom
Fridays from 12:00 PM (ET) - 1:30 PM (ET)
January 13th - The Four Principles of Coaching
January 20th - Listening for Essence
January 27th - Finding the Questions

Replays of the lectures and exercises will be available on the Members Page of the website. Conversations held in the class will not be recorded to allow participants to offer their own experiences freely.
Starts January 13th, 2022
April Stace is on the faculty of The General Theological Seminary, where she teaches courses in community care and the arts. She earned her Ph.D. at The Catholic University of America in 2014, and has served as a pastor in both large and small parishes. She is ordained as a priest in The Episcopal Church.
April has a background in music and was a professional harpist for most of her adult life, releasing 4 albums with her harp/bass/drums band, Harp 46, three of which spent time in the top ten on the World/New Age radio charts. Her background in the arts informs just about everything she does, including her most recent book, a memoir about her years as a queer, recently-divorced and nearly-broke hospital chaplain entitled White Knuckle Love: A Memoir of Holding. Her previous books, Secular Music, Sacred Space (Lexington Press, 2017) and Crossing Boundaries, Redefining Faith (Wipf and Stock, 2016) received positive reviews and have been used in seminary classrooms.
April lives in New York with her super-queer spouse, Lou (they/them), and her super-insightful son, Luke. She founded a coaching and consulting practice with Lou in 2020, focused on the needs of women and LGBTQ-identified clergy and artists. She’s also an aspiring banjo player and finds a lot of joy in long weekend bike rides.
