Nothing Shall I Want: Peace Through Detachment

About the Course

Do you long to be free from sin and bad habits? Are you confused about the meaning of Christian detachment? Have you started on the road, but don't know what to do next? Join Connie Rossini in exploring the teaching of St. John of the Cross in the video course Nothing Shall I Want: Peace Through Detachment.

Connie will release two video lessons a week for six weeks. Each lesson starts with a short video and includes links to further reading, downloads to help you process what you are learning, and questions to discuss with other students in a private forum. Three quizzes test your knowledge.

Expect two hours of total video content. That's like a full-day retreat, but broken down into small chunks that you can watch on your schedule. Find support from other students who are seeking deeper detachment. Learn how to apply each lesson as you go.

This course is not just about information. It's an opportunity for real spiritual growth. You will go away knowing that John of the Cross's teaching is both understandable and doable.

You will have 90-day's access to the course from the day class begins.

"Attending Connie’s courses helped me straighten up my spiritual life and begin working on those things that I’m attached to. Her course helped remind me of my priorities in life, first God, then family, then work and everything else. Thank you Lord for these spiritual courses. May God bless you all!"

"How blessed was I to be already in this course when the bottom dropped out with the pandemic. This course is so well taught by Connie — I see now that the proper understanding of detachment is vital to growing in grace and the knowledge of Christ. The intro to St. John of the Cross is sublime!! Lent of 2020 was the most memorable of my life, and this course was a great aid to me and will continue to be. Thank you so much, Connie!"
