There is an opportunity to attend a Step 1 'Understanding Yourself' course during the weekend 1st - 3rd July 2011 at Alma Church, Alma Road, Clifton, run by John Sparkes from Halesworth, Suffolk. Please check the following link for more information:
John and Merle Sparkes gained insight (through their encounters with Selwyn Hughes and 35 years of ministering to people) into understanding people and how they can be helped to live in the fullness of who God made them to be, by understanding the interaction of temperaments, and how for example, unprocessed emotions can impact lives.
The course will start on Friday evening 1st July at 6.15pm, all day Saturday (not the evening) and Sunday afternoon until 5pm.
It is a God centred holistic approach to understanding how you tick (through your temperaments), understanding 'you', and having a deeper sense of your relationship with God, relating to others, and your own value. It is definitely not a 'threatening' course but enlightening, freeing, helpful and uplifting.
The courses work on a number of different levels and will give insight into issues including:
Helping people to not only understand themselves but also those closest to them... Having said that, it doesn't mean 'analysing' people, just appreciating our differences and working with those differences instead of being confused or frustrated by them.
Helping those who struggle with anxiety and fears.
Understanding why some people have difficulty getting tasks started...or finished; are too driven to achieve; can't easily to 'switch off' emotions or revolving thoughts; or conversely don't engage... to the frustration of others.
Understanding why might one child be particularly creative and another especially sporty; or why do some children find it easy to make friends and others are more reserved.
Helping by gently understanding and freeing us from the past where necessary and understanding how much God values and loves us.
The price is £65.00 (or an early bird concession £55.00 if booked by 13th June). Concessions are £55.00 reduced to £50.00 if booked by 13th June.
