Abiding Relentless Spirit: Psychic Conversion and Contemporary Spirituality

SMP3226HF  L0101 · Cancelled on 2010/05/15
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Psyche is “the sensorium of transcendence.” Psyche, the data of sensitive experience,  explored most fully in depth psychology, illuminates dimensions of consciousness in which there is experienced the very movement of life, the ‘passionateness of being,’ in which it is our task to find direction. What the Christian tradition has called discernment is the search for direction in the movement of life. The abiding presence of the Holy Spirit, revealed in sacred scripture, illuminated in striking imagery from the medieval mystics, renewed in our day in the myriad faith experiences of individuals, communities and in the very groaning of the earth and cosmos, relentlessly evokes and guides our response. Conversion is that call/response, articulated as religious, moral, intellectual and psychic conversion. This course provides an opening to the journey of Christian conversion, with the goal of enabling us to “…give an account of the hope to which we are called…”(1Peter 3:15) in a theologically authentic way that speaks to our times.
