We approach MENTAL HEALTH and HUMAN FLOURISHING
through the following disciplines:
(GOD & BIBLE)
Throughout history, theology was highly regarded as the
"queen of the sciences,"
even providing distinctive perspectives on mental health and human flourishing. Universities initially aimed to integrate different fields under theological insights. Today, many crown physicalism and naturalism the king in scientific discussions, diminishing Scripture as merely mystical and outdated.
Red Ink Revival seeks to harmonizing all knowledge under the enduring truths of Scripture. We also endeavor to engage the Holy Spirit, as a Divine Helper, who guides us into personal and individual freedom.
This is "Scriptural Psychology."
(SPIRIT & SOUL)
The Bible reveals the inner self
– the immaterial spirit and soul –
as the source of flourishing. Psychologically, the spirit/soul originates all our mental, emotional, social, sensory, and volitional abilities.
The physical brain/body presents these immaterial faculties through neurobiological functions (neurons, axons, synapses, neurotransmitters, etc.). Secular psychological therapies have evident positive effects and deserve esteem (valued, studied, and practiced). However, transformational depth (in the spirit/soul) and true efficacy require supernatural encounters with Jesus Christ, which is our highest esteem.
This too is "Scriptural Psychology."
(BRAIN & BODY)
Discover the fascinating relationship between the immaterial spirit/soul and the material brain/body, known as "holistic dualism" in philosophy. While neuroscience explains the brain/body, it also can give tangible insights to the state of the spirit/soul. For human flourishing it is crucial to acknowledge the spirit/soul's role in empowering the body with these animating capacities. Secular therapies (like EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and Neurofeedback) can offer tangible and evident benefits on the soul’s recovery. However, while Christians should value secular therapies, they should ground themselves with the more qualitative understandings of the Biblical spirit/soul.
(PEOPLE & EXPERIENCES)
Our personalities are profoundly influenced, both positively and negatively, by relationships and life experiences. We must recover from the impact stemming from various sources: 1) The original sin committed by Adam, affecting all subsequent generations. 2) Our own sins and the resulting damage to our souls. 3) The sins inflicted upon us by others. 4) The painful losses and tragedies experienced in a sin-infused world. To counter and revive our souls, we must first foster healthy "agape" relationships with God, then ourselves, and then others. Finally, our souls must be restored from the traumatic wounds inflicted by tragic life experiences and memories. This is what Red Ink Revival is on mission to support you with!

As both a pastor and ministry clinician, Patrick has a deep burden for those who struggle in life and wonder why. He has been gifted to be able to provide both compassionate and loving pastoral ministry as well as talented psychotherapeutic help to so many of the strugglers in the Body of Christ all from a clinical/Christian prospective. Patrick’s impeccable integrity and character is a monument to the testimony of the person God has created him to be.

Our culture rewards driven leaders without caring what’s driving them. When that drive comes from a dark place, horrific things happen. To them, their family, and everyone under the influence of their leadership. Can this trend of self-destruction be avoided? One conversation with Patrick Norris will make you an optimist. By focusing on the neuroscience around human behavior; particularly the myriads of destructive addictions, and becoming a guide to whole-heart leadership, you’ll be energized by the value-driven map Patrick has passionately developed for leaders in all spheres of influence!

THE RED INK REVIVAL PODCAST
RED INK REVIVAL PODCAST equips you to be the leader, helper, and impact-maker that you want to be. We empower listeners through an ecosystem of topics dedicated to bring a revival down to the core personality in the heart and soul.
Effective living and leadership requires more than clarifying vision, establishing organizational/home beliefs, developing formal governance, implementing leadership layers, creating scalable systems, and executing strategies. Individual life and leadership begins and ends with the individual heart-health, emotional attunement and self-differentiation of the teammates.
Whole-hearted living is about leading from robust health. We curate resources inspiring spiritual vitality, integrity and emotional intelligence for every role a person must tend to, personally and professionally.Work with Me 1:1
