Exploring Spirituality: Part 2
Course length: 6 weeks
Learning type: On campus learning
This 6 week course will offer students a chance to further explore the meaning of spirituality. Spirituality touches so much of our lives, whether through the things that give us meaning and purpose, or the things that lift our spirits and bring us hope and connection.
The course will include learning about some lesser-known religions, with at least 1 visiting speaker. We will also explore some of the many non-religious paths to the spiritual, for example through poetry, story or contact with nature. Everyone is welcome to attend, you don’t need to be religious.
This course is most suitable for Converge students who attended the Exploring Spirituality course (Part 1) in late Spring 2022 or Autumn 2022.
Course length: 5 weeks
Learning type: Online through Converge Connected
Philosophy, literally the 'love of wisdom,' involves asking questions about ourselves and the world around us. It considers ideas that are central to our lives: the relationships between our body and mind, whether we have free will, how to live a good life, questioning right and wrong, and putting these ideas to the test.
This 5 week course provides a brief introduction to some of the biggest questions in philosophy and offers the opportunity to discuss your responses to them. You need only bring your curiosity!
