This course provides an introduction to spiritual theology in order to help participants develop
spiritual and theological wisdom for life with God. Another major aim of the course is to provide a
vision of spiritual formation to which those in Christian ministry might invite others. We will
explore the history and theology of spiritual practices, gain proficiency in contemplative prayer and
praying the daily office, and engage in devotional and spiritual readings of Scripture. The course will
also draw on a wide range of interdisciplinary sources for developing spiritual awareness, like
ethnographic observation, the Enneagram, and reading poetry and fiction.
