Exploring your Spiritual Journey offers an exciting, experiential course in Christian prayer. It is for people of all denominations and none, lay and ordained. However an interest in the Christian faith and a desire to get to know God better, is important to get the most from the course.
Exploring Your Spiritual Journey
This introductory course allows participants to explore their personal spiritual journey with God and, therefore, grow in faith and self-awareness. The heart of the course involves experiencing, and practicing, a variety of different traditions of Christian spirituality. This, in turn should enrich your personal prayer life. Developing listening skills and supporting each other, also, form a significant part of the course. There will also be an opportunity to draw up a simple rhythm of life.
Spiritual accompaniment provides support and challenge for spiritual growth. It can, therefore, play an important part in our spiritual journey. The course will introduce the subject and give guidance on how to find a spiritual director, accompanier or soul friend.
The only prerequisite for the course is a desire to discover more about your inner journey and a willingness to encounter God more deeply and in a variety of ways. For the sake of the group we, also, ask for a commitment to attend regularly, life permitting.
There are no academic assignments! However, participants are encouraged to reflect on the individual sessions. Review sheets are provided to help and guide you in this. At the end of the course, those who have attended 80 per cent will receive a certificate of attendance.
