Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (Expanded) (Peter Scazzero)

For those desiring to take steps in their Christian life and discipleship, to break free from bondage to the past and experience healing, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Expanded Edition (8-week course) integrates emotional health and contemplative spirituality.

This different approach to discipleship addresses this void, giving you powerful pathways to transformation that will help you mature into a faith filled with authenticity and a profound love for God.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (Expanded) (Peter Scazzero)
  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Session 1 - Emotionally Unhealthy Spirituality

    Emotional health and spiritual maturity cannot be separated. It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. We often neglect to reflect on what is going on inside us and around us (emotional health) and are too busy to slow down to be with God (contemplative spi...

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Expanded: Session 2 - Know Yourself That You May Know God

    Self-awareness is intricately related to our relationship with God. True spirituality means to shed our old “false” self in order to live authentically in our new “true” self. The vast majority of us go to our graves without knowing who we are. Without being fully aware of it, we live someone els...

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Expanded: Session 3 - Going Back in Order to Go Forward

    Our past hands us a certain amount of “emotional baggage” for our journey through life. True spirituality frees us to live joyfully in the present.

    Many of us are eager to develop our relationship with God. The problem, however, is that we can’t seem to stop long enough to be with him. Stopping for the Daily Office and Sabbath is not meant to add another “to-do”
    to our already busy schedules. It is the resetting of our entire lives toward a...

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Expanded: Session 7 - Grow into an Emotionally Mature Adult

    The goal of the Christian life is to love well. Jesus was aware that true spirituality included not only loving God, but also the skill of loving others maturely. Becoming emotionally mature requires learning, practicing, and integrating such skills as speaking respectfully, listening with empath...

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Expanded: Session 8 - Go the Next Step to Develop a "Rule of Life"

    Nurturing a growing spirituality in our present-day culture calls for a purposeful plan. The problem however, is our busyness and lack of intentionality. Often, we find ourselves unfocused, distracted, and spiritually adrift. Few of us have a conscious plan for intentionally developing our spirit...
