Introduction to Christian Spirituality and The Journey to Freedom
The spiritual journey is an ongoing journey towards freedom. This module explores the two-fold reality with regards to freedom from attachment and freedom for love. Our aim is to launch the participants into the journey of freely responding to their calling.
Discernment and Indifference
Participants are accompanied as they develop a discerning heart so they may become more sensitive to the movements within and discover God’s intimate involvement in their lives. This is also an opportunity for them to know their unhealthy attachments so they may partner with grace and be formed towards integration and freedom.
Chastity: God’s Desire For All Of Us
