The courses of the Deeper Walk Institute provide an overview of discipleship (course 1), spiritual warfare (course 2), and emotional healing (course 3). This course will explain a core model for understanding the wounded heart and look at a variety of issues related to the emotional healing journey. Many of the concepts in this course build on those taught in the first two courses, so it is recommended that you take these classes in order.
Based on the book by Dr. Marcus Warner, this session explains the WLVS model of wounds, lies, vows, and strongholds.
This session focuses on the spiritual side of the emotional healing process – listening prayer (the Holy Spirit) and spiritual warfare (demonic spirits). You will learn how these two processes often combine in helping people deal with the wounds of the past.
The Deeper Walk model for dealing with emotional maturity is built on the Bible, brain science, and Christian spirituality. This session looks at practical ways to help people build skills related to the left brain (knowledge), and the right brain (bonding and relational skill building).
Based primarily on the work of Dr. Jim Wilder and Dr. Karl Lehman, you will learn the five levels of brain function and how these relate to emotional capacity.
You will explore the five stages of maturity development (infant, child, adult, parent, elder) and why maturity is crucial if emotional healing is going to produce sustained transformation.
The final three sessions explore the “big six negative emotions” – disgust, shame, sadness, despair, anxiety, and anger. In this session you will learn how to recognize these emotions and some practical tools for helping people manage and resolve them.
These two emotions will make you feel like someone has stepped on your emotional brakes. It can be hard to function after loss, especially when you are looking at a future with no hope. Learn some practical ways to deal with the roots of these emotions and some tools for managing them along the way.
These two emotions will make you feel like someone has stepped on the accelerator of your emotional engine. Both emotions cause high energy that can make it practically impossible to feel and act like yourself. You will learn how the Deeper Walk model can help you get at the roots and deal with the symptoms of these high energy emotions.
