The Emotionally Focused: Foundation is a two-day intensive experience that invites participants to an integrated missional life by embracing a new “mental model” of discipleship. Emotionally Focused is built upon the conviction that each person has a value in Jesus and vulnerable, authentic experience is transformative. We seek to describe and help participants recognize the obstacles to such a life—the wounds, unmet needs, meanings that were made, and vows and ways of being that were developed. These obstacles block your willingness and capacity for a vulnerable, authentic connection to God, who is the source for the abundance of life that Jesus promises. Unless these impediments are brought to light, acknowledged, and confronted, they will continue to hinder your personal growth in relationship to God, others, and self as well as your missional context.
