About the Embodied Encounters with the Divine (2023) course
This course is an introduction to perspectives on Christian Spirituality that resist Neo-Platonic dualities.
With a focus on the place of the body in Christian Spirituality, we will explore the nature of embodied experience in the Christian spiritual tradition.
The course covers Christian Materialism and analyses the contribution this can make to Christian spirituality. The course also draws in sacramental and ecological perspectives on the spiritual body.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors‘ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
What does it mean to audit a course?
This course would made an excellent addition to a study break, retreat or sabbatical in the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral Close, where residential participants enjoy full board, access to the library and to the pattern of liturgy at Salisbury Cathedral.
Whether it’s cultural events, sightseeing (Stonehenge is nearby for example) or shopping — there’s plenty to do if you’d like to extend your stay the weekend before and after the course. For ideas, visit Salisbury Cathedral Close attraction websites to see what’s on Sarum’s doorstep. Visit the Wiltshire Creative website to view events at nearby Salisbury Playhouse and the Salisbury Arts Centre. The Experience Salisbury website has an excellent city-wide listing of forthcoming events around the city.
