Course number : LIR261   ID : 27211    Section Number : 1
« back to classes page
Spiritual experiences are not well understood or discussed, but studies indicate that 70 percent of the population have one or more experience. Experiencers often fear being misunderstood or judged. Spiritual experiences happen in religious settings and in non-religious settings. This course will examine some of the enclaves of spiritual experiences in non-traditional religious settings such as shamanism, wicca and the occult. The course will also examine some of the descriptions of the world beyond, most notably from the writings of Swedenborg and Anthony Borgee. Finally, the course will look at healing and the relationship between spiritual phenomena and health. The emphasis will be on understanding experiences and finding common characteristics. This is not a class about beliefs or dogma. We will discuss recent research and the various organizations devoted to studying the various enclaves. And of course, sharing experiences is an important part of the course. Part III may be taken without having taken Part I or Part II.
