Introduction to the Study and Practice of Contemporary Christian Spirituality
This course examines contemporary Christian spirituality as both lived experience and academic discipline.
As a lived experience, spirituality is the self-transcending integration of the human person through engaging with what is ultimate as one perceives it.
You will build the capacity to develop beyond yourself in relationship with others and with God in understanding, liberty and love.
Spirituality as an academic discipline is interdisciplinary in nature and endeavours to study religious experience and to promote its development and maturation.
Living our spirituality is as simple as attending to our daily life. Every human experience has the potential to be an experiential encounter with those spiritual resources that are deep within us.
Staff development promotes new ways to work within organisations, and with leaders and individuals.
Creating broad new possibilities and unleashing the life of the group helps it respond more effectively to obstacles and challenges.
Staff Development goes hand in hand with a safe environment.
It brings the best out of people and the teams in which they work.
Staff Development unlocks people real potential and assists them to work cooperatively as a team. Finding the organisation’s spirit and unlocking the team’s potential are two of the goals in a staff development programme.
Staff development provides groups and their members with a greater ability to engage and surmount the challenges they face and to do so with integrity and compassion.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI is a self report questionnaire designed to make Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life.
The MBTI is based on Jung’s ideas about perception, judgment and attitudes, and the ways in which these are used by different types of people in various situations.
The information elicited through the MBTI inventory identifies the recognised reactions and basic preferences of people with regard to perception and judgment.
The resultant feedback will help you to identify your unique gifts, strengths, and potential areas for growth in order to assist you to better understand yourself.
Understanding your MBTI type is self affirming and encourages cooperation with others.
The MBTI can be used for:
- Self understanding and development
- Career development and exploration
- Organisational development
- Team building
- Problem solving
- Academic counselling
- Relationship counselling
Tending the Spirit of your Organisation
Find the spirit in your organisation and unlock your teams potential.
Explore ways to work with organisations, leaders and individuals and respond more effectively to obstacles and challenges.
Create broad new possibilities and unleash the life of your group in a safe environment.
Your team can experience being their real and best selves in a group, and work cooperatively as a team.
This course provides groups and their members with a greater ability to engage and surmount the challenges they face, and to do so with integrity and compassion.
Organisational planning using Open Space Technology
Open Space Technology (OST) is a method for organizing and running a meeting or multi-day conference, where participants have been invited in order to focus on a specific, important task or purpose.
OST is a participant-driven process whose agenda is created by people attending.
At the end of each OST meeting, a document is created summarizing the work of the group.
