Ever feel lost? Disoriented? Confused about who you are and where you are going? Ever feel like your GPS is recalculating? Ever have a sense there is more for you to create, attempt, and do, but you lack clarity? In this series, we will explore the voices, restlessness, stirrings, questions, curiosities, pulls, fear, doubts, anxieties, and intuitions that are within us and around us. We will practice the art of listening. We will engage with all that is calling out to us, from within and without. We will learn to connect with our heart, soul, spirit, and deepest self. We will wade through all the distortion, noises, and contradictions to discover the voice of the Spirit. We will be invited to listen, trust and follow our inner guide.

Author of "Parenting Forward" and special guest speaker Cindy Wang Brandt joins us for pt. 6 of Raising Humans: A Brief Guide to Parenting.
 
We are all shaping the generation behind us. They are all watching and listening to everything we say and do. The question is, “How are we shaping them?” What are we passing off to them? For many, this reality creates enormous anxiety and worry. So we devour parenting books and podcasts looking for an owner’s manual. But the truth is there is no one right way to parent. In this series, we will sit down with actual parents and explore new, creative, and healthy ways to talk to our kids about God, religion, sex, gender, inclusion, death, justice, racism, money, boundaries, and discipline. We will learn how to worry well and not pass our own anxieties off to our kids. And we will explore how to raise humans to be who they are, not who we want them to be.

Death and resurrection sit at the very center of the Christ story. The iconic image of a man on the cross has pierced our collective consciousness for thousands of years. What does it mean? What does it reveal? Did Jesus die for our sin? There seems to be a mystery at the heart of this provocative image. Mystery is not something you can’t understand. Mystery is a bottomless, limitless, and endless knowability. In this series, we will explore the metaphors, images, and ideas the early writers used to communicate meaning for this enigmatic event. We will stand with a long line of people across the ages in contemplating the significance of this Christ story. In doing so, we will be invited ourselves to discover ways in which this image might move us today.

Rabbi Heschel said, “Awe is a sense for the transcendence, for the reference everywhere to mystery beyond all things.” As children, we have this primal sense of awe built into us. Back then, every moment is filled with anticipation, imagination, and astonishment. Then life happens. We grow up. Bills. Stress. Betrayal. Traffic. We get bored. Our heart hardens. We get cynical. And that unflinching awe ever so gradually grows dormant. In this series, we want to rediscover that awe. By lifting the veil on reality and gazing into absurdity, we will find an invitation to become awestruck. This astonishing phenomenon we call existence is full of magic, mystery, and astonishment. The question is, how aware of it are we?

Religious Abuse Recovery Specialist Connie A. Baker, MA LPC joins us again we we continue the Religious Trauma message series.

Nov 7, 2020

Religion both heals and hurts. At its best, it feeds, clothes, and comforts those in need. At its worst, it steals, kills, and destroys in the name of God. After centuries of internalizing damning messages, toxic theologies, and scriptural abuse, wounded bodies have walked away from religion altogether. Some became bitter, while others remained, confused, devastated, and skeptically unravelling any notion of God. With certified therapists as our guides, we will explore what trauma is, how to express and recover emotions, and how to rebuild and recover from its devastating effects. Join us as we walk the gentle path to recovery.
