A practical discussion where two former therapists share what they learned professionally and experienced personally about the healing and restoration of our God-given glory

    Healing Through Holy Sites

    Healing Through Holy Sites

    This week, Jake and Bob discuss their recent ministry experiences at Franciscan University, Assisi, and various JPII Healing Center events. They explore the transformative power of healing ministry, why they prefer ministering to groups instead of individuals, and the significance of holy sites. Jake and Bob also share insights into why we need so much healing in today’s culture.



    Key Points:
    Team ministry is powerful and allows for mutual submission and a greater impact. Holy sites have an accumulation of grace and can facilitate powerful encounters with God. Blessing spaces is important to invoke God's presence and protect against spiritual contamination. Blessing places and spaces is critical for inviting the presence of God and experiencing His grace. The desecration of authority and the degradation of holy spaces contribute to the loss of worship, healing, and the culture's current state. Therapists and pastors have distinct roles, and it is important to recognize the limitations of therapy and the need for spiritual authority. Prayer has a powerful impact and can bring about healing and transformation in the lives of others.

    Parts Work (Part 3) w/ Bishop Andrew Miller

    Parts Work (Part 3) w/ Bishop Andrew Miller

    This week, Jake and Bob are joined by Bishop Andrew Miller, the founder of HeartSync Ministries and a priest in the Orthodox Evangelical Episcopal Church to conclude their series on Parts Work. Bishop Andrew discusses the four core parts of HeartSync, the importance of placing God in the center of our hearts, and his process for helping others heal from brokenheartedness. He also discusses the ultimate goal of healing as bringing the whole heart into a loving relationship with God and how giving thanks to God can help bring us into deeper relationship and healing. For more information about HeartSync or Bishop Andrew, visit his website here. 
     
    Key Points:
    Heart Sync is a therapeutic approach that focuses on healing brokenheartedness and integrating the core components of the heart. The four core components of the heart are function, guardian, emotion, and true self. Many people have parts of their heart that are not in relationship with God, and healing involves bringing these parts into communion with Him. Healing also involves making relational connections with God through memories and experiences as well as expressing thanksgiving to deepen the bond with God. It is important to recognize union with God as the ultimate goal of inner healing and deliverance.

    Parts Work (Part 2) w/ Brya Hanan

    Parts Work (Part 2) w/ Brya Hanan

    This week, Jake and Bob are joined by Brya Hanan, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, to continue their series on parts work. Brya shares her personal story from trauma to healing and how it has influenced her work as a therapist. She introduces her model of parts work, discusses the five A’s of parts work therapy, and shares a practical meditation you can use to begin your healing journey. For more information, check out Brya’s book Befriending Your Inner Child. 

     
    Key Points:
    Understanding and integrating the different parts of ourselves is essential for healing and wholeness. Embodiment and the awareness of the body's sensations and needs can be the first step in one’s healing process. The relational aspect of parts work, including self-compassion and love, is vital for healing and integration. The five A's of Internal Family Systems therapy are Anchor, Acknowledge, Attune, Ask, and Act. Incorporating Jesus into the therapy process can deepen the healing and anchoring experience.

    Parts Work (Part 1) w/ Gerry Crete

    This week, Jake and Bob are joined by Gerry Crete, a marriage and family counselor to discuss his work on internal family systems, or parts work. Parts work is a therapeutic approach that involves exploring and understanding the different “parts” of our personality and how they can influence the decisions we make in life. Jake, Bob, and Gerry explore the transformative applications of parts work in therapy, distinguish the differences between desires and wounds, and discuss the role of love and compassion in the healing journey. For more information check out Gerry’s book Litanies of the Heart.
     
    Key Points:
    Parts work, or internal family systems, can lead to remarkable breakthroughs in therapy by helping individuals connect with and understand their different parts.
    Harmony and unity within oneself can be achieved through the integration of different parts, allowing for a more balanced and authentic experience of self.
    Understanding the distinction between desires and parts can help individuals navigate conflicting motivations and make choices that align with their true selves.
    Practical applications of parts work include using analogies and visualization techniques to help individuals relate to and understand their parts.
    It is important to recognize and distinguish parts from the true self, which is characterized by compassion and love.

Wow Just wow!!

This is one of the most helpful podcasts I have listened to. Each episode is packed full of wisdom. I almost feel like I should be paying these guys my typical counseling session fee. There is so much to learn from every episode regardless if I can relate to the circumstances they are discussing. Keep up the great work!

I recently went to Confession and the priest gave me Faith or Fear as a penance. It was a very helpful, healing penance. I am grateful for the gifts these two men are sharing.
