Post Graduate Seminar in Family Emotional Process, Clergy Track I

This program was begun by the late Dr. Edwin H. Friedman in 1988. As Dr. Friedman's faculty, we are continuing the program. The focus of the seminar is on the three emotional systems: the clergy's family of origin, the parishioner or congregation family and the congregation, itself, as an emotional system. The days will be divided into theoretical and clinical presentations, videotapes, including videotapes of Dr. Friedman and clinical consultation. Small group consultation for the clergy's family of origin will occur on one afternoon, and for the parishioner family and congregation system on the other afternoons.

"How the Brain Processes Prayfulness"

Angelo Bolea PhD - January 12, 2018

From Dr. Bolea some thoughts on the Brain and Prayfulness:

  • Knowing about brain can enhance prayer and strengthen faith.
  • Awareness of prayer and brain activity can open windows to prayer with clear vision.
  • Enhancing, developing, and building relevant brain areas prepares for increased effectiveness of prayer.

Prayer and brain are reciprocal, impacting and enhancing each other. Everyone prays and everyone uses the brain to do so. Lets join together and learn more about brain and behavior.


For those unfamiliar with Dr. Bolea, he is a neurospychologist and expert in neurofeedback who presents the latest in brain research as it relates to optimal functioning.

Dr. Bolea is a createive and gifted speaker. His knowledge of the brain and reletionships deepen one's understanding of Bowen Theory and Ed Friedman's leadership ideas.
