Discovering and building on your spiritual strengths is a key means for experiencing wholeness and peace, both personally and professionally. Through this workshop, and the pre-workshop completion of a 120-item inventory, participants will discover their premier spiritual strengths, uncover the regressive forces that can keep them from expressing their true selves, find healing and peace, and discover new and deeper levels of spiritual growth and personal fulfillment based on those strengths.
Completion of the “Spiritual Strengths Finder Inventory” will give each participant a 20-page personalized overview of six key spiritual strengths as well as the shadows and compulsions that can stand as dark sentinels on either side of an area of strength. Spiritual strengths are the internal fortitude or energy that shapes one’s personality in everything that one does.
In addition, participants will receive a seven-week outline of exercises which will help them focus on and further develop their spiritual strengths.
Participants need to register no later than March 15, 2017. An inventory will be sent to you and the completed form needs to be returned by March 22.
