EPIC Workshop


EPIC ("Embodying Principles in Culture") is back for round 2 this summer, and is coming at you bigger, better, and brighter! If you're ready for a truly divine and revolutionary experience with the Principle, then EPIC 2.0 is for you.

Join us from July 14th to July 28th for an EPIC two weeks at the beautiful Morning Gardens in Gloucester, MA!

MISSION STATEMENT:

For participants to understand Divine Principle on a personal level and integrate it into daily life such that they are empowered with confidence to express it to others.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Rooted in a gaining a deeper and more personal understanding of the Divine Principle, EPIC 2.0 will be organized into three different sections over the two-week program.
>PART 1: The first week consists of a "crash course" in the fundamentals of the Divine Principle.
>PART 2: The weekend will consist of a weekend trip in nature to connect with God.
>PART 3: The second week will focus on gaining an understanding of True Parents' life course and how it relates to the DP.

The purpose of the whole workshop is to build a personal connection with the Divine Principle. This will be through group discussions, lectures, stories and input from our workshop parents, and practice in faith-sharing. The purpose of practicing faith-sharing is to 1) increase understanding of the content, and 2) gain confidence in explaining the DP in day-to-day interactions to friends, family, and acquaintances. In addition to deepening our understanding of the Divine Principle, we will also be bonding with our brothers and sisters, experiencing God through the joy of activities, nature, and music, and creating an total experience that aims to inspire and continue to be with us when we leave to go back home.
