Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

03-02-2022 Thursday 20:00 - Thursday 21:45
Take a look below the surface. If you have a desire to grow in emotional and spiritual wholeness, then this course is for you!


This basic premise of emotionally healthy spiritulity is that you cannot be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. In this 8 week video-based course, Peter Scazzero describes the top 10 symptoms of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. He then unpacks the 7 biblical pathways to guide you into an experience of lasting, beneath-the-surface transformation in Christ.
We are planning to run this spiritual formation course with a contemplative prayer focus beginning February 3rd.
 
Please find below the session titles and a very, very brief summary of the session content:

Session 1 - The Problem of Emotionally Unhealthy Spirituality Looking at the problem: “It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature” Pete Scazzero
Session 2 - Know Yourself that You May Know God Has to do with increasing our self-awareness and identity discovery; discovering our “true self” in Christ.
Session 3 - Going Back in Order to Go Forward Looking at “family of origin” issues and the emotional baggage that we bring with us in life. And how to be set free!
Session 4 - Journey Through the Wall Teaches us that genuine transformation usually comes through adversity and as we experience the “dark night of the soul”.
Session 5 - Enlarge Your Soul Through Grief and Loss We all face many “deaths” in our lives. Our culture sees these as “alien invasions” and interruptions to our “normal” life. The choice is whether these deaths will be terminal (crushing our spirit and life) or will they open us up to new possibilities and depths of transformation in Christ.
Session 6 - Discover the Rhythms of the Daily Office and Sabbath. The title gives a hint of what this session is about.
Session 7 - Grow into an Emotionally Mature Adult Growing into an emotionally mature Christian person includes experiencing each individual, ourselves included, as sacred, or as Martin Buber put it, as a “Thou” rather than an “it”.
Session 8 - Go to the Next Step to Develop a “Rule of Life” The word “rule” comes from the Greek word for “trellis”. A trellis is a tool that enables a grape vine to get off the ground and grow upward, becoming more fruitful and productive. This session teaches us how to build a trellis for our lives (spiritual, emotional, relational, etc).
