AT 315 Contemplative Practices for Ministry (INTENSIVE)

from 600.00

Drawing up the rich resources of the Christian contemplative tradition, this course examines closely different kinds of contemplative practices with the aim of increasing openness to the way God’s Spirit is active in the hearts of both spiritual leaders and those whom they companion in the spiritual life. Students will experience and develop an ability to guide others in stillness and movement practices, spiritual practices that tap into creativity and generative processes, ritual/cyclical practices, and relational practices. The pedagogy will include role playing of spiritual teaching of contemplative practices. Underlying the course will be the conviction that ministries of spiritual direction, guidance or companionship are a form of prayer grounded in the spiritual lives of those who offer these ministries.

Dr. Westina Matthews.  1 credit.
