“The glory of God is the human person fully alive.” These words of St. Irenaeus encourage us to cultivate a holistic spirituality that integrates the gospel call to holiness and our human longing for wholeness. This workshop will treat the following: 1) models or frameworks for understanding what living with wholeness and balance looks like; 2) common factors that rob us of the peace and equanimity that we yearn for; and 3) spiritual and psychological strategies for dealing with stress and fragmentation in our lives. The focus of this workshop will be on self-knowledge and its relationship to spiritual and psychological growth.
Registration is open online (click Buy Tickets button). In the event the workshop is canceled, participants will be notified by Wednesday, the week of the workshop. Registration fees are refunded only if the workshop is canceled; no refund for partial attendance or no-show.
