Be Still and Know
Description: The invitation to “be still and know that I am God” seems often to be a verse used to comfort those in turmoil, bring peace in the midst of chaos and settle the wandering heart. Yet there is much wisdom to be gleaned from this simple passage that speaks to the hearts of all who desire to know God more intimately and more truly, regardless of your current state.

John Calvin said once that “without knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God”. In this course, we will tackle the essence of this quote. How does one know “self”? This course is for those who desire to deepen their self-knowledge and grow in their intimacy with God by picking up tools and methods which require stillness and attention.
In this workshop, participants will be provided an opportunity to learn how to attend non-judgmentally to things that we tend to overlook, ignore, get distracted from, or are uncomfortable with. The workshop will be facilitated by an experienced psychologist. The process will involve the use of art, focusing exercises, reflective activities and mini-discussions. Everyone is welcome!
