A team of UUI mental health professionals has designed a special two-part workshop to provide our Urantia community with a perspective on life’s transitions and a set of ministry tools to help ourselves and others better cope with significant life changes. Participants will learn about the stages of transition and grief and how this process can lead a person to new discoveries of profound meaning and value in living.
The tool kit is for everyday use by everyday people who wish to enhance their ability to extend a friendly, Jesusonian hand and compassionate listening to others. Workshop participants will learn a variety of helpful techniques that reflect the ways that Jesus ministered to people, which invariably lead to growth and wisdom and maintain the integrity and health of the self. Participants will also receive a set of supplemental materials to compassionately help ourselves and others as we all individually and collectively undergo the pangs of life’s inevitable transitions and necessary losses.
