WOS 501 Feminist Perspectives On Spiritual Direction
Faculty: Janice L. Lundy, DMin MPC (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
Spiritual direction is a process of looking at one’s own life and journey in the context of one’s values, agency and selfhood, and relationships to self, others, God and the world, in the company of a seasoned and compassionate companion. In this course, students will gain an understanding of how dominant theological and cultural worldviews impact women’s spiritual experience, including: patriarchal and androcentric views of God, the person and human relationships; and how we can reinterpret these in light of feminist theological reflection to yield models that redeem and affirm women’s experience as the locus for knowing and being in the world.
