L608 Spring 2018 Personal Experience of the Ineffable (Divine) Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, Mar. 27–May 1
Instructor: Martin Walsh
Class limit: 20
Over 40% of adult Americans report having had some type of “mystical experience” beyond the realms of ordinary consciousness. The course will combine lecture with personal experience. We’ll review the research and share examples from different faith traditions, as well from those who doubt or do not believe. Participants can share their own experiences of awe, wonder, insight, and illumination or they can describe a deeply spiritual person they know. We will also discuss what makes a spiritual experience authentic.
Martin Walsh is a former Jesuit, a nonprofit executive, and a spiritual director, who will lead you on an exciting, reflective journey into the moments of awe, wonder and mystery in life.
