Through my ministries as a Spiritual Director in the Ignatian tradition, a Lay Minister and a Reiki Master Practitioner, I have developed Authentic Freedom, a formal curriculum for the Psychological and Spiritual Formation of adults. Rooted in the Western Contemplative tradition, Authentic Freedom has a universal application that speaks to people across a broad spectrum of religious beliefs and practices.
Transcending dogma, Authentic Freedom reveals the powerful and life-changing message at the heart of Jesus’ teachings and the universal truths at the core of every religion, making this curriculum relevant to a modern audience. Authentic Freedom provides effective tools through which participants are able to grow in their relationship with God (the God of their understanding) and with themselves, begin the process of gifts discernment, identify and transcend the inner obstacles to naming and sharing those gifts so that they can freely and openly sharing their gifts in the world for the betterment of all.
Authentic Freedom is comprised of four courses:
- Called to Freedom
- Authentic Freedom
- Deepening Freedom
- Living in Freedom
With applications for spirituality, religion, psychology, counseling, recovery, movement therapies, meditation and mindfulness, holistic wellness and ecumenism, Authentic Freedom appeals to a wide audience with a diversity of interests.
It is my hope to create a network of teaching centers where the Authentic Freedom curriculum is being offered. As such, I have created a diverse spectrum of offerings through which Authentic Freedom can be shared in the world:
1) Local courses
2) On-line courses (Click HERE for upcoming online offerings)
3) Authentic Freedom facilitator training (Click HERE for information)
4) And finally, I am in the process of contacting retreat and wellness centers who might be potential centers through which Authentic Freedom can be made available. My goal is to find people within those centers who could be trained as Authentic Freedom facilitators and share this curriculum with their unique audiencee.
If you think you may be interested in taking an Authentic Freedom class, becoming a facilitator or if you know of retreat or wellness centers who may be potential centers for learning, please contact me at (920) 230-1313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
