Theology & Practice of Ministry Week-Part 2: Spirituality for Extroverts and Introverts

November 21, 2012 - November 23, 2012
Offered by
Fort Qu'AppelleSK

Wednesday, November 21 (6 pm supper) to Friday, November 23 (1 pm)

Have you ever wondered if Sunday worship is working for the extroverts in the congregation or how to encourage introverts to join committees? In this prayerful workshop Dr. Nancy Reeves will explore these questions (and more) using material based on her book “Spirituality for Extroverts.”

The societal stereotype says that extroverts are great in the business world because they are so social and introverts are challenged due to their inward focus. On the other hand, introverts, because of that ease with “turning in” are wonderfully spiritual. The poor extroverts often fidget and become bored with introverted contemplative prayer, so lets keep them on the social justice committee. Recent brain research shows that Es and Is use different parts of their brain to engage with life.

In this prayerful workshop (participants can choose how much alone or with others time they wish) we will explore:

what makes a spiritually and psychologically healthy introvert and extrovert,

specific challenges each inclination has and

how to transcend the E/I dichotomy.

We will also try out spiritual practices for both inclinations. Some of this material will be based on Dr. Reeves’ book “Spirituality for Extroverts (and tips for those who love them).”

Dr. Nancy Reeves is a psychologist, psychotherapist, spiritual director, best-selling author, and award-winning columnist from Victoria BC. She presents in 9 countries and is assistant adjunct professor at the University of Victoria.
