We can all identify times when we have been triggered by things that put our brains into what can be referred to as, “Enemy mode.” In enemy mode, we can be angry and defensive even toward people we normally like. When we are in enemy mode, we can be convinced we are in the right and yet be blind to where we are in the wrong. In enemy mode we can have destructive opinions, attitudes, and thus actions toward others: friends, family, strangers, anyone. And when we are in enemy mode we tend to attack or withdraw, instead of living and loving from the heart Jesus gave us. In this 1 hour webinar, Dr. Jim Wilder shares insights on what exactly enemy mode is, how enemy mode ‘works’ in our brains, and some of the practical things we can do to help ourselves, and others, when we fall into enemy mode. This webinar was recorded live on July 1, 2020.
