Backpack Adult Faith Formation

It is our responsibility, throughout life, to actively pursue growth and development. We are called to consider ourselves with affectionate contemplation, viewing God as our friend and ally. This, by itself, can become a life-changing skill. Wherever we are in our journey to peace, perhaps it is time we advance.

What Is Backpack AFF?

Adult Faith Formation by Backpack Productions is a twelve session course that inspires, educates, and encourages participants to consider their relationship with God and advance into it. 

Do you know how to examine your conscience in a healthy and happy way? Are you excited about everything you are doing that delights God? Do you feel able to communicate with others in a productive manner that protects your boundaries and theirs? (Pssst. If you’ve never been systematically taught your boundaries and how to know when someone is crossing them? You need this course.) Have you examined your beliefs about yourself, about others and about God? Do you understand why, when you feel anxious and can you discriminate between anxiety that is appropriate and anxiety that is neurotic? Do you understand how to choose your thoughts and shift your brain from catastrophic thinking to calmer, more productive thinking?

The Backpack AFF teaches deep relaxation in the service of Contemplative Prayer and also helps individuals to identify faulty beliefs or formation and replace it with accurate and balanced Catholic teaching.

What People Are Saying About Backpack AFF

"I found the idea of really contemplating and accepting ourselves as fascinating. It sounds simple, but I discovered that to translate this into an experience like this even more would be very beneficial. If we could see ourselves as God does, how different would the world be?"

"It was a wonderful experience, that should be ongoing in our lives... formation, sharing, study, growing in self awareness, practicing silence, contemplation, listening for God's voice, sharing the Gospel with and without words."

"I am grateful to the Backpack Team for making available this AFF course online, it was what I needed to heal from my wounds that were hidden from me."
