Many people today, including Catholics, non-Catholic Christians and those of no specific religion seek some kind of ‘spiritual direction’ in their lives. They may also have a sense that there are precious riches to be discovered in the great Catholic spiritual tradition which stretches back two-thousands years, riches which may illuminate their own path.
That great tradition beings in the Holy Bible and then flows on through the Fathers, the desert hermits, monks and nuns to the great mystics of the Middle Ages and then on through the Spanish mysticism of St John of the Cross and St Teresa of Avila, to the great saints and spiritual writers of modern times, saints like St Thérèse of Lisieux: the names of these great spiritual guides are far too numerous to list!
If you are seeking spiritual enlightenment on your journey from this great cloud of witnesses this summer school is for you!
The teaching team for this course is led by Dr Denise Oliver.
