  • THE WHOLENESS COURSE

    Four Mondays 1900-2100 starting 8 October at Grace Family Church, Riverside Campus

    Register at http://bit.ly/WholenessCourse

    The Course is free but there is a R50 fee for the accompanying manual.


    The Wholeness Course brings together the five areas of human function – the spiritual, rational, behavioural, physical and emotional aspects of self. Attenders will better understand why they think, feel and behave the way they do.


    Wholeness gives a practical framework for understanding how all areas of our life fits into God’s plan, and the tools that help us grow closer in our relationships with Him.


    Please note that this course is a pre-requisite to the main annual Wholeness Counselling Training Course.


    The Wholeness Course can also be purchased on DVD with accompanying manual for R150.

    • Potential unresolved issues from each childhood stage and how this might influence the adult self
    • Becoming aware of limiting beliefs due to inner child wounds
    • Abandonment in the mother-child relationship
    • The subtle process of emotional abandonment and its consequences
    • Characteristic behaviour in abandonment
    • The overshadowed self as a result of narcissistic wounding
    • Psychodynamics of the narcissistically wounded person
    • The role of the negative animus and anima as protective mechanisms in abandonment
    • Therapeutic approaches with narcissistically wounded people
    • Five steps for discovering, re-parenting and healing wounded child within
    • Play and projective techniques in adult psychotherapy (drawings, paintings, sand tray therapy, clay play, bodily movement)

    The focus will be on experiential learning.
