CS105 : Spiritual Disciplines for Emotional Self-Care (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : AY 2019-2020 Sem 1
About this course
Am I able to hold my bundle of emotions (thoughts, feelings, visceral experiences and urges) so that I do not simply react to situations but respond in a way that reflect that I am a follower of Christ? Perhaps we struggle with this in stressful situations, with anger, sadness, anxiety and other emotional experiences in our day to day living. There is hope. We learnt from neuroscience that it is possible to regulate our emotions through new experiences. As part of our self-care, we can tap on Christian spiritual
disciplines to create new emotional experiences that make space for God in our life. In this space we open ourselves to be more aware of God’s presence, to notice and hold our inner experiences with more openness, to discern with greater clarity what God is saying to us through his Word in our situation, and to allow the Holy Spirit to enable us to act in a way that brings greater love, praise and service to God.This course is experiential; it is for anyone who desires to experiment with embracing the Christian spiritual disciplines in their ordinary living towards greater emotional well-being. May we receive and experience God’s grace in our emotional self-care.
