Emotionally Focused

We are all leading and living out of a narrative that has shaped our lives—and we can’t take people further than we’ve gone in our own stories. Emotionally Focused is a robust and reflective transformation process that looks at who you’ve become and what blocks you. It invites you to look under the surface of your unique story and discover more of your true life in God within His story.

How It Works

There are 3 core courses in Emotionally Focused that build upon each other:

EF Foundations (Course 1) is a two-day process all about growing in awareness — understanding more clearly why we see the world in a particular way and how we decided to behave to stay safe in relationships. By uncovering specific wounds we experienced and the meanings and vows we made, we can become aware of patterns of behavior that hold us back from becoming more like Jesus. Participants will be able to process learning through individual time for reflection and journaling, and facilitated small groups.

EF Formations (Course 2) is a six-month process that expands the tools and deepens the experience of showing up differently in relationships. Through 12 one-hour online meet ups and weekly coaching in small groups, participants work through practices and written reflections to help move toward their preferred future. Receiving coaching is a vital and life-giving way to see what we can’t see on our own, and many participants say that the coaching process was the key to moving out of suck patterns into a life of flourishing.

EF Family (Course 3) is an eight-week course that looks not only at how and when our buttons get pushed, but explores family of origin as the place the buttons were originally installed. Using family systems theory as a framework, participants identify the various expressions of anxiety in their families and the impact this had (and may still have). As they become curious about how anxiety originates and spreads throughout an emotional system, they can choose to be the person they want to be in spite of it.
