Living with Desire

October 19, 2018 // 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Desire is the energy of creation that flows through all of us. It’s that cry at the core of our being that screams, “I want to live!” Every created thing shares this desire, and every living thing wants to move toward that which gives it life.

Unlike other created things, humans have the freedom to lean toward or away from the desires of our heart. Why do we do this? Because the world teaches us how to suppress or misdirect our passions, to live fully with desire requires a tremendous amount of courage.

Join us on Friday, October 19th for Living with Desire as we embark on a journey together through teaching and guided table discussion with the Sage Hill team. We’ll help you explore your God-given desires, learn how to courageously embrace them, and freely give yourself permission to live with them. Once we get there – the outcomes will be unpredictable and the gifts, immeasurable. Will you join us?

WHAT: One-day immersive seminar exploring how to courageously connect with the desires of your heart. Through teaching and guided table discussion with the Sage Hill team, we’ll explore how living from these desires can change the course of your life and those you love the most. This experience has been designed for men and women of all ages to rediscover more of how they were made to relate to God, themselves and others. Limited to 50 participants.
WHEN: Friday, October 19, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm
COST:  $125 / price increases to $185 on October 8! [coffee, snacks & lunch included]
WHERE: Shelby Farms Park, FedEx Event Center
GUIDES:  Jeff Schulte, Dr. Tim Holler, Sarah Lawrence Allen, Dr. Corey Latta, and Shad Berry



Jeff Schulte gives direction and oversight to the global mission of Tin Man Ministries. Jeff’s passion is investing deeply and personally in the lives of leaders and the organizations they lead. Prior to this, Jeff was the Executive Director of the Sage Hill Institute,  and the directional leader, teaching pastor, and founder of a church with international reach that grew from four people to more than 4,000 in eight years. 



Tim Holler has been counseling and/or teaching counseling for over 20 years. As a college professor, he taught both undergraduate and graduate students, concentrating on supervising interns in clinical practice. As a private practice counselor, he has years of experience with individuals and couples whose struggles in the present (e.g. depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse), are bound up with their personal histories.



Sarah Lawrence Allen was led to work at Sage Hill Counseling after the Spiritual Root System™ brought her new life personally. Sarah Lawrence has experience working in inpatient and outpatient levels of care with adolescents and their families, struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma. She believes that struggling is part of living fully, and it is better to struggle together than to struggle alone. Sarah Lawrence is a native Memphian who loves both the people and the city of Memphis!


Dr. Corey Latta has a B.A. in Biblical studies, M.A. in New Testament Studies, M.A. in English, and Ph.D. in Literature. He has taught in Christian higher education and served in ministry for over ten years. A few of his passions in ministry include teaching biblical interpretation, creating discipleship relationships, and helping people see God’s purpose for their lives. He is the author of C.S. Lewis and the Art of Writing, and is currently working on a new book on Christ and creativity.



Shad Berry Shad’s personal experience with Sage Hill in 2012 stirred a passion for a Sage Hill presence in Memphis. Along with co-founder Tim Holler, they shared a vision to meet the overwhelming need in their community for life-changing counseling. In October of 2014, Shad and Tim officially launched Sage Hill Counseling in Memphis, TN, to help people “see who they were made to be so they can do what they were made to do.”








We’ll begin our time together at 8:00 am with welcoming music, refreshments and teaching from Jeff Schulte, Dr. Corey Latta and Shad Berry. We’ll then divide into groups for a time of guided table discussion.




During lunch we will enjoy some local fare while continuing our guided table discussion with a member of the Sage Hill team.




Tim Holler, Sarah Lawrence Allen, and Shad Berry will continue the conversation around living with desire. We’ll dive back into facilitated group discussions and a time of reflective exercise to recover the voice of your desire.


The seminar will end at 5:30 pm but we invite you to linger as we commemorate the day with a healthy celebration in community!



“The Living with Desire event really opened my eyes to just how many things prevent me from living in the present. It helped paint a picture of what life can be when we move from a posture of performing to one of honesty about our needs, our feelings and our hopes. It was incredibly rich and I highly recommend it!” – Stuart Harris, Living with Desire attendee
