Religious Addiction or Healthy Spirituality? How to Tell the Difference
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
How do you know if your spiritual path is opening you to an authentic experience of God’s presence or entwining you in an addictive cycle of dependence? Healthy spirituality leads us into greater love for ourselves and respectful connection with others. Religious addiction, however, traps us in absolutist thinking and ever-growing dependence on a person or institution. Special guest Dr. Robert Hemfelt, psychotherapist specializing in relationships and addictive disorders, author and professor, discusses how to tell the difference, how to disengage from an addictive religious situation, and how to develop life-giving spirituality.
