A game-changer for the Church

“In my work with young men in universities and seminaries over many years, I have not found any approach to growing in chastity that is more effective than The Augustine Way. It has been a game-changer for these men! I’ve run many groups, and I’m amazed at how well the psychological principles in The Augustine Way line up with the real-life experiences of the men.  It has an immediate impact on their growth in chastity.

“As I lead, I always emphasize the Church’s traditional spiritual approach, and back it up with Dr. Harvath’s solid neuroscience and psychology. This wholistic approach which includes science, theology, spirituality, psychology and community is truly eye opening and life-changing.  Men who may have struggled with chastity for years are finding new levels of freedom and peace.”

Comprehensive approach

“Seminarians and young people today are coming from a toxic, overly sexualized culture. The Augustine Way program is based on scientific research in habit change and solid Catholic anthropology. It presents a comprehensive mind, body, and spirit approach to the pursuit of chastity.”

An effective tool

“The Augustine Way has proved to be an effective tool to help young men to acquire a basic self knowledge in a dimension of their experience so often cloaked in ignorance, error, and shame, providing a solid foothold for the development of Christian virtues.

“Under the guidance of a compassionate facilitator, The Augustine Way can help these young men understand and embrace the challenge of sacrificial love while accepting themselves in their current stage of development. Incorporating insights from psychology and theology, Dr. Harvath has developed an effective resource that has helped young men better cooperate with God’s abundant grace for what is clearly one of the most serious battles they are already facing. I recommend it heartily!”

Transformative for Participants

“For the past several years, I have witnessed The Augustine Way taking shape as Dr. Harvath has created, revised, and refined the program. I have seen first-hand the transformation of men who have embarked on The Augustine Way and reached a much deeper level of peace and freedom. A tree is known by its fruit (Luke 6:43–45) and for this reason I am full of hopeful trust that the Lord will bless this program as it is transplanted to universities and parishes.”
