As an open learner on this course, you will choose two specialist topics to explore which each reflect an expression of contemporary spiritual engagement. They also exemplify approaches in which spiritual traditions and their practices are viewed through the lens of contemporary psychology. The psychological lens allows issues of definition, measurement, and frameworks concerning spiritual experience to be critically evaluated according to scientific principles.
You will also be engaging in several content- and discussion- webinars, which will explore aspects and issues in contemporary spirituality, and help you identify the inter-relationship between the two option topics of your choice and the spiritual psychology module overall.
Ellis Linders is a researcher specializing in transpersonal engagement and transformation in contemporary spirituality.
