Living with the Fruit of the Spirit is a journey that many others before you have taken and can testify that it works. The principles that you will learn in our program will help you live in a way you have never lived before. ER is not a self help program, a positive thinking technique or a quick fix. Emotional resilience is learned through weekly group meetings, exercises, mentoring and a deep and nurturing devotional life. Over time, you will see significant and lasting change in the way you react to life, relate to others and regulate your emotions. It becomes a way of life.
RETURNING FROM PAINFUL EMOTIONS
The Bible teaches that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” In the last 20 years, neuroscience has learned how the brain and memory work hand-in-hand in shaping behavior. ER uses spiritual teaching, psychological principles and applied neuroscience to help us learn to regulate our emotions. Science teaches that many of us do not have the resilience needed to return to love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Fruit of the Spirit) from painful emotions. Instead, we struggle with the ability to regulate our painful emotions. When that happens, we turn to substi- tutes such as: negative behaviors, events, experiences, relationships or substance. Anything to give us instant or short-term relief. The good news is that EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE: Living with the Fruit of the Spiritworks in a holistic, integrated way. It works with our brain processes, personal emotions and spirituality to produce long lasting positive results. With ER, we can live the way God intended for us.
Why Study EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE?
Find areas within our personality and behavior that we need to bring into MATURITY. Change pervasive and hidden BELIEFS, assumptions and interpretations from past experiences and bring them into an adult mature belief system. Learn to REGULATE our emotions and return to love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithful-ness, gentleness, and self-control (Fruit of the Spirit) every day from alarm setting sensations, false beliefs and painful emotions. Learn to stay at PEACE in an emotionally resilient zone, led by the Holy Spirit producing a godly, healthy state of mind.
It works! We have testimonies to prove it. Change, however, doesn’t happen overnight. Recovering from life’s trauma, living in maturity and freedom after years of internal struggles, takes time. You will see some immediate results but it takes continued practice and focus to make lasting change. In order to produce lasting change ER works with the brain, the emotions and the spirit. Come and join the many others that have found emotional freedom!
