The Beginning of Wisdom: Know Thyself
In our community we’ve worked hard to recover the ancient spiritual practice of confession. Because it has picked up so much religious baggage through the years, we don’t call it “confession.” We call it the practice of “self-awareness and self-disclosure.”
It is one of the more transformative spiritual practices we know.
The worksheet will guide you through the process.
The attached resources will help you do it well.
