Time is running out in 2017 to help ProgressiveChristianity.org. We are sustained by donations averaging about $25. If everyone reading this right now gave just $15, we would reach our goal of $60,000 by the end of the year. We are a small non-profit with a very small staff trying to do big things in this world. We keep our site free of external ads so that you can trust and rely on what you see and experience here.

Most of what we offer, we offer for free. And that includes thousands of articles, books, liturgy and community resources, music, reviews, curricula, and a thriving and growing international network of people like you searching and building community, all with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

ProgressiveChristianity.org is a global portal for hundreds of dedicated volunteer authors that simply want the movement to grow. For the same amount one spends on coffee each month, you can help sustain an organization dedicated to spreading the word of a compassionate and informed Christianity. Please help us keep ProgressiveChristianity.org online and growing. Thank you.

Emotional Intelligence: The Soul’s Expression of Self



You may feel them as goose pimples, a warmth in your chest, or a deep ache in your belly. What are emotions and what triggers them? Emotions are an oft misunderstood, or even ignored, aspect of spiritual life. Sometimes we are led to believe that emotions – whether negative or positive – are simply obstacles to remove in order to achieve enlightenment. However, it is when we examine our feelings and investigate to where and what they point, that we discover our emotions to be an expression of Spirit moving through us. By raising our awareness and deepening our understanding of our emotions, we will be able to better manage and engage these puzzling aspects of ourself.


Through contemplation, reflection and discussion, students in this class will gain a new perspective on emotions, a perspective that will foster personal and spiritual growth. As you increase awareness of yourself, you will come to a deeper and more expansive sense of presence than ever before.
