IN BODY, HEART, MIND & SOUL
Parrhesia in greek means to speak boldly and candidly without fear. The vision of Parrhesia is to enable and empower seekers, disciples and apostles of Christ to live more authentic, whole, and integrated lives that boldly proclaim the unique identities God has given them.
The mission of Parrhesia is to help each individual grow in self-knowledge so that they can learn how they can best love and relate to God, Self, and Neighbour and be their True Selves.
HOLISTIC & INTEGRATED
Parrhesia's formation philosophy is that spiritual well-being needs to be seen as intimately integrated with intellectual, emotional, and physical well-being. The entire human person is God's temple, and responsible stewardship of our lives begins with good stewardship of ourselves in our totality.
Be who you are and be that well. So that you may bring honour to the Master Craftsman whose handiwork you are.
- ST. FRANCIS DE SALES
God speaks to us and prompts us through every aspect of our lives. Learning to listen to and respond lovingly and prudently to the signals that our emotions and bodies send us are an integral part of growing in self-knowledge and compassion for ourselves. Learning to honour the limitations we have helps us to remember and live out our creatureliness and dependence on God.
Aiming to grow in wholeness in body, heart, mind and soul in, with, and through Christ while surrendering every outcome to God is the underlying philosophy of Parrhesia's approach to human formation.
