"This fine book is filled with insight, depth and wisdom! It succeeds in putting good theology together with good psychology, with neither watered down -- leading to a life-giving, healing encounter with yourself, others, and God."

Paradox Lost (book)
Uncovering Your True Identity in Christ
by Katie Skurja
Using stories of transformation, Paradox Lost presents a comprehensive framework for understanding our patterns of “stuckness” and provides specific tools for getting off the riverbanks and into the current. With life-giving insight into God's nature, readers will find the courage to uncover their own wounded places, as well as invite others to experience the wholeness of abundant life in Christ.
Note: for students enrolled in Imago Dei courses through the Companioning Center, we offer a special bundled rate of $45 for both Paradox Lost and Reflection Cards. This includes shipping. Contact us for more details.
Exploring the Inner Life Through Metaphor
"I learned more about my client in 20 minutes using
these cards than in 3 months of appointments."
The inner world is intangible, hard to grasp, and difficult to put into words. The Reflection Cards were developed from the use of sandtray therapy, and are an invaluable tool used to share personal story, thoughts, ideas, and painful situations. Each set contains 120 images printed in the same size and durability of regular playing cards.
Cards include: Living and Inanimate Objects. Emotional States. Light and Dark Themes. Male and Female. Universal Archetypes. Spiritual and Psychological Themes.
*Note: shipping outside the U.S. may incur additional charges.
Come Let Us Reason Together
The path of spiritual growth involves many stages of death and resurrection.
