A simple 10-step process that offers a graceful way to change unwanted thoughts, feelings, and habits, and achieve goals you thought unattainable.
The Andhra Pradesh CRI Formators’ Forum organized a 5-day skill training seminar for all religious formators in AP on ‘Core Transformation’ to meet the deepest strivings of our times: to heal ourselves and develop as human beings – emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
The seminar was held in Satyodayam, the Secunderabad Jesuit provincialate from 6-10 February.
The resource person was Fr. K.C. Thomas SDB addressed 44 participants including 9 Rectors from various seminaries, 9 other priests and 26 women formators from 21 religious congregations.
Sr. Leena CSSA, Vice President of APCRI and Fr. Antony SJ, ex-officio of APCRI Formators’ Forum who were present for the inaugural session stressed the importance of ‘core transformation’ of persons in charge of the formation ministry, and wished the participants a fruitful experience through the seminar.
Fr. Selvanayagam HGN, coordinator of the Fomators forum introduced the theme to the participants about its systematic functioning and its dynamics.
Fr. Thomas explained that Core Transformation, an offshoot of NLP helps to develop, maintain, an inner sense of self, well-being, wholeness and a connection with the divine.
He explained that through Core Transformation you find that what you perceive as limitations in your life are actually doorways toward resolution. Imagine he said, your most difficult problems actually having a positive aspect, something through which to learn, grow, and transform. Core Transformation gently guides you in discovering those positive intentions, leading to an experience of understanding, where awareness and change occur naturally.
Besides in put sessions, group interactions and common sharings, there were meditations, demonstrations and supervised practices among the participants conducted by the resource person that helped the formators.
The seminar concluded with the celebration of the Eucharist at 12.00 noon by Fr. Antony SJ.
