Contemplative special events at Saint James

In addition to our parish-wide day retreats, Saint James also offers contemplative events for the community. Below are just a few we’ve hosted in the recent past.

Being True to Ourselves in Christ

March 2, 2019; 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Hunter Mobley, author, law professor, attorney and Enneagram teacher, will lead us through this centuries old tradition that helps us discern both our shadow side and our path toward healing.

In Mobley’s program, Know Your Number, we will learn our Enneagram types (one of nine numbers, 1-9) and begin a lifelong journey of spiritual work to move beyond our inherited patterns of behavior to wholeness and transformation.

Kimberlee Peifer, Director for Contemplative Prayer and Practices at Saint James, was our guide in centering practices throughout the day. Our time concluded with our regularly scheduled 5 PM mass featuring music from The Phantom of the Opera.

About Hunter Mobley

Hunter Mobley was introduced to the ancient spiritual wisdom tool, the Enneagram, years ago when he met master Enneagram teacher, Suzanne Stabile. Hunter completed a multi-year old-fashioned apprenticeship with Suzanne as formation for his Enneagram teaching ministry at conferences, retreats, corporate events, and churches. Hunter is a teacher at Suzanne and Joe Stabile’s teaching center in Dallas, Texas. Hunter is currently Executive Pastor at Christ Church Nashville, home of the Grammy-nominated Christ Church Choir. He also teaches as an adjunct professor at Belmont University College of Law. With degrees from Davidson College (B.S.), University of Kentucky (J.D.), and New York University (LL.M.), Hunter combines experience and insights from ministry, academia, and law practice as he teaches the Enneagram. Hunter has served his community as Vice-President of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee’s Antiquities, and as a Board member for Begin Anew and Mercy Multiplied International. Along with Dan Scott, Hunter is co-author of three devotional books, Road to Pentecost, Road to Christmas, and Twelve Drummers Drumming.
