Spiritual Self-Mastery and Mental Health

I wanted Baha'i Thought readers to know about an awesome workshop that will be taking place at Bosch Baha'i School in December entitled, "Spiritual Mastery and Mental Health". The info is below. I particulary hope readers on the West Coast take advantage of this opportunity and then comment on your experience on this blog so the rest of us can learn from you! Also, learn more about the Baha'i Association for Mental Health here.

Dear Friends,We hope to see you at the BAMH workshop at Bosch to be held on Dec 18-20, 2009 entitled "Spiritual Self-Mastery and Mental Health". Drawing upon the explanations of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, this workshop will focus on the nature of the soul, its relationship to the rational mind, its interaction with the reactive physical self, and the stages of spiritual development. It will feature experiential and interactive exercises exploring the processes of prayer and meditation and deep listening, and it will explore their practical applications in increasing unity and opening options for acts of service, all essential to intensive programs of growth. It will be facilitated by Dulamdary Enkhtor, M.A., Ph. D. candidate in Clinical and Community Psychology, and Mary K. Radpour, LCSW, psychotherapist in private practice. The workshop is not limited to mental health professionals, and is open and suitable to wider audience.
