Core 8: Building Vulnerable Community
By nature of the lives we lead and the world we live in, we share common pain. This pain is not unique to our age or location but is common to all people everywhere and for all time. If not handled properly, pain can cause spiritual, emotional and relational struggle. Very often, people live their lives limping from pain not suitably cared for. Furthermore, God intends for us to find support for our pain in a receptive, vulnerable community.

God has made us wonderfully. Our emotions and our bodies are closely connected. In fact, emotion always happens in the body. Just as emotions affect the body, the body affects emotions. There are bodily techniques that can be learned to bring about a healthy emotional experience. This course aims at equipping you with the skills to have healthy control over your emotions so that they can be used as God intended them to be used. This course teaches six emotional regulation skills. We recommend spending 1 week per skill.For more information & to register!
