Courses Coming This Year
We have lots of inspirational courses planned for this year so please check back regularly. Here are some of the up and coming courses we have on the horizon.
This course aims to enrich the pastoral ministry of participants and to make accessible to them the formative wisdom of Christian mystics and spiritual masters. The short course is therefore, suitable for a wide range of people: those who work in pastoral settings (hospitals, chaplaincies, prisons, in ministry) and those who are simply interested in understanding more about the spiritual life and pastoral ministry.
In this new 4 week course you will encounter the works of the formidable Edith Stein. In each week Professor Peter Tyler takes us through Edith's life, her approaches to empathy and her philisophical views on the development of the human soul. Edith Stein was also hailed as one of the first feminist of her time and this is echoed in her works - join us as we explore this inspiring feminist's legacy.
Over this short online course we will connect and engage online with the mind of Pope Francis revealed in this book. The three chapters : A Time to See, A Time to Choose and a Time to Act are invitations to discern the sign of the times. With a sense of togetherness let’s explore what vision emerges from the book and explore the challenges felt in this Pope’s exposé of a better future as he perceives it.
The course will explore the main themes of Teresa’s life and spiritual teaching. By allowing Teresa to speak to us through her own words, it will provide participants with an insight into her character, her concerns, and the central themes of her mystical theology.
As the new year begins, opportunities for growth in the spiritual life abound. Join Canon John Udris as he explores expansion of heart in the thought of the mystics and in the process of discernment, helping us to ready our hearts in a place of receptivity for the inflow of God. The evening will offer plenty of time for prayer and sharing.
The desert is a place of both purification and promise. As we journey through Lent, how can we find nourishment in the wilderness and recognise where the Lord has both carried us and gone in front of us, always present in both light and cloud?
The Spiritual Direction Training Programme (Carmelite Tradition) - builds on an interpretation of the experience of journeying towards intimacy with God as expressed in the life of the Carmelite saints and deriving principles from this for the growth and flourishing of the spiritual life.
