Inner Alchemy presents a class with popular teacher Michael Bogar:
When My Spiritual Treatments Don't Work: Then What?
Historically, human beings have lived on a mental and emotional pendulum fluctuating between happiness and misery. These two extremes are the central topic of myths and movies, and are the reason for politics, religion, medicine and therapy. The New Thought Movement offers spiritual tools for deliverance from this misery, but what do we do when it "doesn't work"! In this class we will explore this dilemma by honoring the effectiveness of spiritual mind treatment and the experiences of disappointment when it doesn't seem to work -- and we will seek to reconcile these vast differences.
Three classes on Tuesday January 8th, February 12 and March 12 from 7-9pm. Early bird pricing of $70 for all three classes until December 21.
**Prerequisite for this class is having taken Beyond Limits with the Center for Spiritual Living.
Michael has two graduate degrees in biblical and theological studies. He is completing his PhD in Myth and Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. The title of his dissertation is: Watching God Grow Up: Reading the Bible as Stages and Modes of Consciousness. He is the Director at the Spiritual Enrichment Center on Bainbridge Island. He teaches World Religions for Central Texas College at their Lewis-McChord campus in Tacoma, as well as regular classes at the Seattle Center for Spiritual Living and the Seattle Unity Church, and other venues. Students and audience members frequently comment on his depth of scholarship, personal approach and sense of humor. Michael has taught the classical religious texts from many religious traditions and is a very effective teacher of spiritual and psychological phenomena.
Michael brings a full-life experience to his teaching. He can relate to a wide range of human experience and has a way of communicating to those at the top of their game and those ready to quit. He views life as an educational experience that he calls soul-making, requiring both negative and positive relationships with people, circumstances, ideas and emotions. There is no wasted moment in a soul-making life.
