then almost every episode and every conversation in it
has the power to mirror and transform our lives.”


Sharon Taylor presents Spiritual Practices Through an Emergenetics Lens

Cost: $25 to $45, as you are able

Spiritual practices and what attracts people to them has been fodder for study and conversation for centuries. In this workshop, participants will focus primarily on how Emergenetics - a psychometric founded in neuroscience that measures patterns of thinking and behaving - influences personal leanings and provides information and insight on what might be useful for those with whom we accompany in spiritual direction.

Participants will receive an individualized Emergenetics profile during this workshop. Early registration is recommended, as participants need to complete the profile questionnaire in advance of the workshop.

What is Emergenetics?  Technically, Emergenetics is a brain-based psychometric assessment that highlights thinking and behavior. This webpage is a good place to start for those who want to know more about this assessment.

What will participants take away from this workshop?
In addition to the workshop information, and experience, participants will receive an individualized Emergenetics profile. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire, however participants will need to register for the workshop and complete the profile questionnaire by August 1, 2014.Once registered, participants will receive instructions on how to access the Emergenetics profile questionnaire.
