At Naming the Real, we believe in the transformative power of naming and storytelling to foster personal and collective growth. Our mission is to guide individuals, couples, and groups toward a life of flourishing and purpose.

Our approach is deeply engaging, focusing on knowing your story from new perspectives, understanding the impact of your background, and developing flourishing practices. We emphasize the importance of promise-keeping, honesty, and living in abundant mindsets.

Scripture & Spirituality: Scripture & Spirituality is designed to help you engage Scripture well, moving away from fundamentalist orientations or Bible-readings, which were designed to give certainty and power rather than teaching faith, humility, and love. We will explore how Scripture invites us into the way of descent—the death of ego and the celebration of imperfection—for the sake of freedom. The goal of this workshop is to empower you to live a fully flourishing life that helps heal and transform the world around you. Information about Scripture & Spirituality can be found HERE.
