Practical Spirituality course

The goal of this course is to soak in, in all your uniqueness, the realization that everything is part of a greater whole and to experience what this Natural Knowing means to you in life and work.

The desire under this course

This course originated from a deep desire to give spirituality a full place in daily life. Not meditating for a while in between the acts, but being allowed to make real and attentive contact with sources in yourself and in others.

This created a strong need to learn from guides in the field. Elsewhere that have seen more of the world and can bring spiritual development to fruition. In order to spend a longer period of time together with like-minded people, for both the deepening and the application of spirituality. To become part of a movement towards consciousness development from a deeper knowledge that is already underway. To be able to be involved with the world and the people around us from a different consciousness. In order to be able to pass on everything learned again.

Leading questions

The practical spirituality course starts with the question: how do I really apply spirituality in my daily life? An answer to that question lies in a constant, meandering river of deepening and applying your spiritual practice, which goes hand in hand with psychological development.

Sometimes this quest revolves around learning new rituals, practicing techniques to tap deeper layers, or learning about other ways of dealing with meaning or awareness. At the same time, the emphasis is on the application, always coming back to daily reality, your work, your home, yourself. It takes discipline and courage to create space for that which needs space. Applying a spiritual practice requires choice and commitment.

Questions that may be important:

  • What does spirituality mean to you in everyday life?
  • What are you feeding in yourself?
  • How do you choose?
  • What are you going to do when you grab yourself by the scraps and really get back on track?
  • How can I experience spirituality from a vision and sense of source and not out of fear of drought?
