About the Event
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are all called to the vocation of love: love of God and love of others, that most challenging command. Yet real love cannot exist without interior freedom, which is best achieved by understanding more deeply how we are made; that is, what belongs to the "self" which God has lovingly gifted to each of us, and which He asks us lovingly to give to others.
This one day retreat is designed to help the participants learn some useful psychological principles which are applicable to our greatest life challenge: growing in our capacity to receive love, and love others more effectively. Reflection questions and further resources will be provided so that each participant can apply these principles to their own individual situations.
Some key questions will be posed and addressed during the day:
● How does my mind work to make sense of my life experiences? How does God enter the "story" of my life in order to change the narrative I live by? How can I understand the role that feelings ought to play in my life?
● What is meant by "boundaries"? What's my responsibility and what's not, and why is this so often confusing? Can I learn to say "no" lovingly to guilt and manipulation? Conversely, can I say "yes" to being a servant, but not a "doormat"?
● What is true forgiveness and what isn't it? How and why is forgiveness absolutely crucial for my happiness?
● How is gratitude the key to emotional and spiritual well-being?
● How do I begin to train my thought-life to align with the Good News of Jesus?
