Moving Beyond The Shack with The Shack Class and Study Guide

We’ve been working like crazy on the new class and study guide for The Shack and it’s almost ready to go. Last week we even spoke with William Young and he was both excited and supportive to see that we’re finally coming out the other end of the tunnel.

For those wondering what’s in store for this online class built around the book The Shack, here’s a brief description of course 1.

Beyond the Shack is a revolutionary, high impact, life-changing experience that engages the student in a deep and satisfying emotional connection to God: beyond rules, guilt and pain into relationship, joy and power! An exhilarating journey of discovery! A remarkable integration of teaching, coaching, social interaction and contemplation! The unique integrated coaching takes you beyond knowledge to actual experience of deep spiritual truth.

Course 1 – Forgiveness: Possible or Impossible?
Pain & Guilt: Neutralizing the Poison

When others hurt us, abuse us or commit horrific crimes against us, where is God in all of this and how could he possibly ask us to forgive? Forgiveness: Possible or Impossible? addresses the theme of forgiveness in The Shack book by William P. Young, and highlights the three distinct types of forgiveness, commonly taught as one. The course teaches common forgiveness myths, the dangers of premature forgiveness, and explains how to experience true freedom from those who have hurt us. If you are still feeling wounded by another, then this course is especially designed for you. Experience healing and a new freedom of your heart as you develop a loving and lasting relationship with God and others.

Student Comments: “I really liked the interaction with the other students on the conference call and was surprised at how fast a bond began and people started opening up.” “I liked the fact that there were seasoned staff on the call to ask the questions and keep the group on track.”

    Dr. Sawyer is an amazing source of deep understanding around the subject of forgiveness. While I would have thought that I was very knowledgeable about forgiveness, it turned out that I was surprised by a number of things in the course that were very beneficial for me in dealing with my past. Thank you very much, EduPlex, for putting this incredible course together!

    This course is absolutely remarkable. I was amazed at how practical it was and very applicable to today’s life. Anyone who is suffering from the hurt of others needs to take this course. When I applied these ideas in my relationships I was thrilled at how free I was to really love others. It opened up a whole new way of living.

    When people teach about forgiveness they sometimes have no idea about the various backgrounds and woundings of their audience, and they teach as if everyone is the same. I love what Jim did with this course and how powerful the teaching is. It will definitely help thousands of people discover the freedom to love again.
