Beyond Religion: Alternative Paths to the Sacred

Beyond Religion: Alternative Paths to the Sacred

During a course in my doctoral program, I had to develop a personal program for spiritual development that incorporated non-traditional means. Drawing from the book by renowned psychologist and professor Dr. David N Elkins, I discovered how wonderful it was to establish a connection with the sacred through non-traditional means such as writing my own mythology narrative, further exploring the arts, nature, and relationships, and perhaps the greatest one was connecting with the sacred through reflecting on my dark nights of the soul. This broadcast attempts to discuss how I incorporated these elements into a spiritual program that took my life and ministry to a more empowering place.
