Transforming the Self
LAS 163 - Transforming the Self3 hours There are many paths to transformation, many ways to grow and change. In the Common text, Living Buddha, Living Christ, transformation occurs through the practice of “mindfulness,” or focusing within. St. Francis of Assisi wrote, “If you want your dream to be, build it slow and surely…stone by stone, build your secret slowly.” In this seminar, you will meet many individuals in world drama who are transformed through their difficult choices. They dream; they risk; they love. Whether characters are historical or fictional, they will guide you along a path of transformation. Ask yourself: how did my struggles, decisions, self-awareness, and search for God, contribute to the shaping of my identity and ultimately to my inner transformation?
