Centre for Human Flourishing

We live in a time characterised by change, innovation, choice, freedom and diversity. This Centre offers courses and events to inspire fresh thinking and shift practice as we reflect on how we live together and what wellbeing and the common good mean.

Opportunities to explore wholeness and the values which empower us to flourish, especially as they relate to issues such as health, disability, sexuality, age and love, the latter particularly as expressed at the end of life. The Centre’s programme offers an expansive idea of what is possible through visual arts, music, poetry and story.

James Woodward is Centre coordinator and principal of Sarum College. As a practical theologian he has focused particularly on areas of health and healing, old age, the practice of theological reflection, and end of life care.
