Sacred Listening in Tumultuous Times offered by McAfee

McAfee School of Theology offers for audit Sacred Listening in Tumultuous Times. This course is taught online by the newest faculty member, Dr. Heidi Miller. This course invites students and auditors to experience the spiritual practice of deep – or sacred – listening as they learn to be fully present with the stories of individuals, communities, institutions, and societies who encounter tumult, impasse, or trauma. They will learn how re-storying emerges through a heightened understanding of “the dark night of the soul,” biblical practices of lament, and embodied trauma. To guide students into this spiritual practice, they will also explore their own personal and spiritual formation story. Meets on Zoom on Tuesdays from 8-9 p.m. with Dr. Heidi Miller
