Human Condition, Course ll  

                           
   

This course delves into Fr. Thomas Keating’s core material of the Spiritual Journey and the process of healing our human condition. In these video-taped lectures, he offers an evolutionary model for human development, describes the prerational energy centers and introduces us to the concept of the False Self with its afflictive emotions.

 

You will learn how, through the practice of Centering Prayer, the Divine Therapist begins the process of dismantling our False Self, thereby healing our emotional wounds.
