As Christians, we believe that Jesus invites us to be transformed into people who love God, love one another, and love ourselves with all of who we are. But so often, we live with the nagging sense that maybe we're not good enough for love and belonging, or a fear of failure or inadequacy that limits our ability to be ourselves. So we hide, we self-protect, we hold back who we are, and we miss the opportunity to live authentically courageous, compassionate, and connected lives as we were designed to. But there is an alternative way to be. Romans 12:2 invites us to "be transformed by the renewing of your mind," because in Christ, we are offered another way to think and to live. That's what this workshop is all about.
Soultraining is a 6-week Wednesday-night workshop led by Pastors Aaron and Brynn, combining study of Scripture with learning experiences developed by The Daring Way™, to practice living lives filled with more courage, compassion, and connection. Brynn and Aaron are both Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Candidates.
ABOUT THE DARING WAY™ METHODOLOGY:
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. During the process, we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
Every Wednesday, August 26th-September 30, 2015, 7:30-9:30pm
Each session builds on the next, so participants must plan to be present at every session during the workshop. If you can't make each one this time around, we'd love for you to stay tuned for future workshops and sign up for our next one!
