“The Simple Care of a Hopeful Heart: Resilience, Compassion, Personal Wellbeing & Prayer”
￼￼￼One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own peace. However, we can’t share what we don’t have. By discussing psychological and classic spiritual approaches to maintaining perspective and inner strength in challenging times, Robert Wicks offers insights into how we can live in peace and, in turn, extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process. Topics will include: maintaining a healthy sense of perspective; avoiding dangers that lead to unnecessary stress; developing your own self-care program; knowing the 4 “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life; improving self-awareness; facing inner darkness; and developing a richer rule of prayer. These rich presentations will provide essential information on resilience, compassion, personal wellbeing and prayer.
Dr. Wicks received his doctorate in psychology from Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital, is Professor Emeritus at Loyola University Maryland, and has taught in universities and schools of psychology, medicine, nursing, theology, education, and social work.
