Programme Outline

This course has been developed to offer an insight into:

  • Spirituality and the New Age movement
  • the history and development of Spirituality
  • what it can mean to call yourself a spiritual person today
  • the Beliefs and Practices of New Age.

The course is ideal for anyone who wants to have a deeper understanding what spirituality means  in a world of secularisation and how it possibly has marginalised religion but can lead to a deeper, experiential and personal understanding of religion. Spirituality can for example be seen as a specific expression of being religious but also as a way to experience the overlapping ‘essence’ of all religions.
