What is a “transforming faith”?
It is a faith that is transforming, and transformative, is one that moves with the flow of life, changing our small perspectives into larger ones that can hold more love, more compassion, more joy. Calling this “faith” doesn’t mean it’s related to a religious tradition — it is more a commitment to authenticity and a sense of trust that we are all part of the Big Life or the Big River that lives and moves through us, and that I believe loves us as well.
But it is also a faith that is open to having beliefs changed, revised, reformed, and transformed. Beliefs happen in the mind, but faith happens in the heart, and if we are to be transformed into more compassionate, more loving, and more joyful people, we must allow our minds and hearts to be changed and enlarged.
My research brings together the transformative practice of dream work with a framework of process thought and process theology that is ever-becoming and moving with the Spirit of Life. My passion and goals is to write and speak about this kind of transforming faith.
