In search of soul:
Exploring the spiritual journey
A one year part time spiritual exploration course
May 2021 - March 2022 (provisional dates)
Based in Bristol, UK. One Saturday a month over 10 months
This part time course is open to anyone with a strong interest in exploring spirituality and the spiritual journey from a broad perspective. You do not have to belong to a particular religious or spiritual tradition in order to do this course and it is not focused on any one particular spiritual pathway. All that is required is a desire to discover more of who you are as a spiritual person and to engage in a committed way with your own search for a deeper spiritual life.
It does not matter where you are on your spiritual journey, what you believe or don’t believe or whether you know what it is you are searching for. This course is a journey of discovery. It is for those of us who are seekers, who live with the conviction that ‘there must be something more than this’ and with a yearning for what the philosopher, William James called ‘the More’. It is both an inner journey and a journey into the heart of the Sacred Mystery.
The course will also be interest to health and social care practitioners who wish to develop their capacity to work with the spiritual dimension of experience or are considering undertaking training in spiritual accompaniment. In this respect, the course acts as a substantial Continuing Professional Development course. It also forms the first year of the CSEA Diploma in Spiritual Accompaniment.
How will the course be structured and delivered?
This is a part time modular course which is delivered over nine months. There are ten Saturday meetings which will take place in the Bristol area - two whole day meetings from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm at the beginning and end of the course and eight monthly half day meetings from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm. The maximum group size will be eight.
The three course modules are entitled:
The spiritual self
Making the spiritual journey
Exploring spiritual practice
The course prospectus will be available later this year. You can request a prospectus by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
