Spiritual Experience: For REAL — For YOU — For the FUTURE with Dr. Calvin Chatlos
Spiritual experience is for REAL. A science-based explanation of our capacity for real spiritual experience will be explained along with a specific process for its promotion. The important role of experiences of worth and dignity will be highlighted. It is for YOU. The capacity for spiritual experience is wired into our brains and available to all open to it. Details about the personal process available for its access, a description of its characteristics and opportunities, and an explanation for why it cannot be experienced initially by reason and understanding will be reviewed. It is critical for our FUTURE. Einstein’s quote, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them,” now has a response. The creativity that opens with spiritual experience provides an incredibly powerful new way of thinking. This is a webinar not to be missed!
