I wanted to introduce you all today to Spirituality and Practice, an excellent website offering email-based courses in spirituality. I did their Ramadan course earlier this year, and found it to be an easy way to learn something new, without a heavy commitment or workload.
Right now Spirituality and Practice is offering a course beginning November 9th based on the writings of Joyce Rupp, a spiritual midwife and member of the Servants of Mary community. Rupp is the author of twenty books on Catholic-influenced spirituality, including the fascinating Prayers to Sophia and her most recent, Open the Door: A journey to your true self.
This email course will focus on themes such as:
“pulling through life’s losses and sorrows, letting go, using ordinary objects as spiritual catalysts, ways to soften our hearts, sharing God’s promises, signs of hope, methods of praying, pilgrimage, the meanings of the four seasons, mystical connections, the ties that bind us to earth and the cosmos, sacred teachings about Sophia, paths to spiritual growth, and much more.”
Mary Ann Brussat, one of the course facilitators, was kind enough to let me know that even if you start the course late, you will be able to access whatever email assignments you missed through the website. In addition, this particular Spirituality and Practice series offers an on-line Practice Circle where you can interact with others regarding the course material.
The email-based method from Spirituality and Practice makes this a very affordable series — just $24.95 for six weeks of material. To read more about it and to sign-up, click here.
