Event Details

Insight Counseling Centers invites you to a training on Lectio Intima (Intimate Reading) and Passionate Partnership.

2.5 CEUs available for Licensed Clinical Pastoral Therapists, approved by the Tennessee Association of Pastoral Therapists.


Lectio Intima weaves together the riches of Christian tradition, Jewish mysticism, and relationship studies to offer new hope for committed couples. Participants will explore monastic meditation, looking beyond asceticism, to find applications for powerful mindfulness and conscious awakening. For clinicians and their clients who seek deeper self-knowledge, communion with divine love, and intimacy within their partnerships, this approach offers a non-judgmental space for discovery.



Participants in this seminar will learn:


  • How to use sacred texts as springboards for intimacy
  • How to use Imago protocol in partners’ lectio
  • Increased openness to a variety of faith approaches
  • Awareness of the enormous importance of lectio divina to Western heritage
  • Appreciation of the Jewish roots of Christian mysticism
