Emotions & Spirit Powerfully Woven Together

November 17-20, 2022

Jim and Lynette Vaive have been coming to Bethany as retreatants themselves for the past several years. Now they look forward to sharing some of their journey with you in this Spiritual Emotional Intelligence Retreat! They forward to using some of their assessment reports with you to explore the foundational practice of emotional intelligence, then you’ll take a look at this thing we call “spiritual emotional intelligence.”

Using individualized reports available from a faith-neutral assessment you complete prior to arriving at Bethany, you’ll have an opportunity to experience how emotions and spirit can be powerfully woven together to bring awareness, belonging, and insight to your journey.
