In addition to our Four Levels of Happiness and our Journey to Excellence, we also offer a valuable and popular workshop on the Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life, which explores Level 4 happiness in depth. The audience is typically a chancery or priest/deacon retreat or event, though we’ve presented to other groups too.
The desire for happiness in the human heart is not limited to physical, ego, and social dimensions but yearns for a happiness that is unlimited and perfect. Fr. Spitzer calls this ultimate happiness Level 4 – the desire for the transcendent. This workshop and book focus on the nature of this experience, prayers, the Beatitudes, partnership with the Holy Spirit, contemplation, and the Eucharist.
The Five Pillars program provides a “jump start” to a deeper spiritual life for today’s active people. The proven spiritual principles and techniques help participants grow in their everyday connection to the living God. It also strengthens ‘communio’ among Catholic teams through shared understandings and spiritual practices.
The Five Pillars workshop helps individuals and groups pray better and better integrate prayer into their personal and work lives. The workshop comes with video presentation from Fr. Spitzer, along with exercises, and materials accompanied by the best selling book with the same title.
