C5131 Spiritual formation: Soul Work
Instructor: Deirdre Sommerlad-Rogers, Ph.D.
Course Dates: September 9 – December 15, 2019
Class Meetings: Thursdays, 9:00 PM ET
Course Description: This course links theory and practice in personal spiritual growth, philosophy of formation and Pagan ministry in a way that is academically informed, honors the earth and sentient life, and is communally relevant. This core course focuses on a holistic spirituality – nurturing body, mind and soul life, creating a dialogue between those practices of tradition, personal health and relationships, and the concerns of ministry. The spiritual quest is the work of the human person engaging the life force and the soul enlivening one’s life. This course places creativity at the center of what the spiritual question means for each student as our means of investigation, practice and reflection.
Required Reading: Higgenbotham, Joyce and River, Pagan Spirituality: A Guide to Personal Transformation. 2006, Llewellyn Publications.
