About the So Longeth My Soul course
Christian Spirituality Through the Lens of Bereavement
This course explores the deep connection between the longing for God which dominates the texts and practices of the great Christian spiritual writers and the yearning we experience as part of human loss, exploring themes such as lament, the creative imagination, and engaging with absence and darkness.
