Spiritual Resilience: Strengthening Your Inner Life in Challenging Times
A Retreat with Dr. Robert Wicks
One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own peace. However, we cannot share what we do not have. By discussing psychological and classic spiritual approaches to maintaining perspective and inner strength in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others), offers insights into how we can live in peace and, in turn, extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process. Topics will include:
- maintaining a healthy sense of perspective
- facing inner darkness and avoiding dangers that lead to unnecessary stress
- developing your own self-care program and improving self-awareness
- knowing the four “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life
- developing a rich rule of prayer
