SEEKING WHOLENESS 2018
During these seven weeks you will be invited to take part in an experiential process that aims towards integration of spirituality and psychology, owning the divinity within you, the sacredness of your humanity. A process that will heighten awareness of how your personality was formation from earliest years and how you relate today. In making this journey you are both challenged and stretched, ‘letting go’ what no longer serves you, to allow God’s purpose for the Kingdom to be born anew.
