I applied for the training because I wished to improve my knowledge of God and people. This urge to improve arose from the helplessness I felt as a believer in seeing all the misery around and in me. I felt that something was missing both in my relationship with God and people. I had no tools for a better life. I cried out to God with my Bible in hand „What to do now, Lord?”
One of my brothers recommended me the Eleos basic training where it became obvious during the fist session that I had come to the right place. That was what I had been looking for all along!
My first discovery I rejoiced over was the holistic view on people. I understood and then started to apply it to myself that we need to see a person, an individual as a whole (body + soul + spirit + social background and family etc.). It was also a great realization that as each person has his/her own life story, the difficulties they face are not necessarily the consequences of sins. Being stuck might be caused by difficulties brought from the family or other scars, pain which can have an impact on how we view the self and God. Thus being saved does not necessarily mean that the individual is fully healed. When I’m saved I’m reconciled with God but it doesn’t necessarily mean that all my scars will be immediately healed. I experienced it in my life, too. From a violent family atmosphere loaded with threats came my survival strategy and faulty final life purpose. A new realization was that the roots of a current problem could be found in the past. The method of Adler clearly pointed to this connection. We started to work on the past with the endless love and professionalism of Márti which slowly started to lead to the path of forgiveness. My inner healing slowly started to change my relationship with God.
It was also important for me to get to the realization that it is not my job to solve the problems of people who come to me for help. Even as a believer I don’t have to take over their responsibility.
It was another first to see that even believers can have their limits. It has and will have an impact on my building and nourishing relationships.
The above are only a few nuggets from all the blessings I got during the training.
To sum it up, during the self knowledge classes and other interactive classes I could understand things which are the basis for my healing. Self knowledge is necessary, what’s more vital as it gives the basis for my love relationship with God.
I cannot recommend it enough to everyone!
In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Eph.1:5-6
