(What exactly is “Emotional and Spiritual Health”? Jesus the model. “Building a good scaffolding” – looks at what I have, what I need, and how I can improve my ‘tool bag’ for living.)
The foundation day is recommended as a preparation before attending other days.
The School of Emotional and Spiritual Health (SESH) provides a series of one-day workshops to equip you for living an authentic and vibrant spiritual life, so that you will live well and love well. It offers practical tools for understanding the emotional life and the spiritual life and looks at how these impact each other.
Jesus said, “Whoever believes in Me, rivers of living water will flow from within” (John 7:37-39). Yet so often this can feel like a trickle. What is blocking the rivers? SESH helps you to identify the blocks, to find a way to face unresolved issues, and to catch hold of faulty thinking. Could my past be sabotaging my present, my confidence, my relationships? As regards difficult emotions or conflict, why do I (or they) react and behave this way? And what on earth am I to do about it?
Attending each day will provide answers to many questions, such as…
How did Jesus model a good emotional and spiritual life?
Is anger ever a good thing? And how do I deal with it when it isn’t?
How do I tame the monster of anxiety?
How can I learn to listen? …silence?
How do I practice the presence of God?
Why can’t I just say NO!
Why do certain Christian ‘beliefs’ drive you crazy?
Understanding the difficult emotions like guilt, disappointment, sadness, rejection and how to turn them into ‘jewels’
Finding joy, peace, restfulness…and lots more
In a safe and professional environment you can find the courage to lift the lid off your life in order to have a look inside and also find tools to bring lasting change.
What is involved?
Each day includes topics on emotional and spiritual health and growth, with teaching and practical exercises alone and within small groups.
Who is it for?
It is for anyone longing to find answers to the question, “Why am I the way I am?” and who has the courage and willingness to come and explore the answers. It is suitable for young people, mature people, those involved in caring for others including pastors and counsellors, and for anyone who wants to develop their own emotional and spiritual life.
The best thing I can offer you is a healthy ME.
