Exploring Spirituality

Course length: 6 weeks

Learning type: On campus and online through Converge Connected

This 6 week course will offer you 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 nonreligious 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.

Tea Ceremony

Course length: 6 weeks

Learning type: On campus learning

This course will give Converge students a practical introduction to cultural studies and philosophy through the art of making tea and will draw on different cultural perspectives using tea as a way to explore traditions and cultural beliefs, etiquettes and history.

The course will also cover aspects of East Asian philosophy related to traditional tea ceremonies including Confucianism, Taoism and Zen Buddhism as a way of exploring belief structures and themes of cultural belonging.

Public Speaking

Course length: 6 weeks

Learning type: On campus learning

This course will be well-suited for people from a wide range of sectors who need to present or speak as part of their work or who simply fear speaking in public. It will also be relevant to anyone who needs to present digitally now and is unsure where to start, as well as those who have experience of presenting but feel that they could improve.

Together, we will identify your presenting strengths and weaknesses, add personality and life to your presenting style, and explore ways to engage with your audience.

It's about humanity, and it's about being connected. And it's about supporting one another and being in a community.
