The Neuroscience of Prayer: That We Would Discern & Do The Will of God Oct 26

Those of us intent on pursuing God and God’s “greater good” are often called to unconventional, countercultural, counterintuitive things.  It takes calm, clarity and courage to discern and do the will of God—and our brains don’t naturally cooperate!
In this workshop led by Kristin Evenson, a spiritual director, consultant, and coach trained in the neuroscience of change, we’ll explore:
  • the brain’s inherent tendencies that can short-circuit our best spiritual intentions
  • ways to be present and open to the still small voice of God
  • spiritual practices that rewire the brain (renew the mind!), strengthen the soul, cultivate Christlike character, and deepen discernment—as confirmed by neuroscience!
We’ll also have time to practice and process some of these spiritual practices for ourselves.  Come and enjoy an evening exploring the mind and Christ-centered mindfulness.
