Are you asking the big questions in life, like “Who am I? What is my purpose and meaning? Why do I exist”? Asking these existential questions can be the first step to new growth, healing and maturity.
In this workshop led by Licensed Mental Health Counselor Alison Issen, you will use different tools to explore the path you have followed in your spiritual life thus far, in order to find direction for your future journey. You will also learn about the current developmental theories of spiritual growth in adults. This workshop is trans-denominational; all faith and wisdom traditions are honored.
This program is presented by Alison Issen and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
