Ageing Grace-Fully: The Arts and Spiritual Self Awareness

This two course series explores one facet of spirituality and ageing – the life transition at retirement.

As a course on how life’s many transitions affect us spiritually, the issues discussed will have a relevance beyond the topic of retirement. However, with retirement as a focus, the course offers in-depth insight into the spiritual dimension of such transitions – how we can assess them and meet our changing spiritual needs.

The first day will explore ways in which artistic exploration helps us to identify both our own spiritual needs and those of others around us. The day will involve a combination of academic and practical approaches to working with the arts in terms of life transitioning. The methodology will compromise arts practice, visual exegesis, textual analysis and discussion.

This is a new course. No previous experience or academic qualifications are required. Participants who attended last year’s Spirituality and Healthcare course will notice that it focuses on those topics that the course group highlighted as being particularly relevant, and lend themselves to further research.

Each day is booked separately. Details about day two.
£45, includes lunch and refreshments.
