Online Series: “Dreams and Spiritual Growth” Coming to OST
Oblate School of Theology
Wednesdays, April 7 – 28 | 7:00PM – 9:00PM Central Time | ONLINE EVENT VIA ZOOM
Dreams are powerful ways for God to communicate vital insights to his people. This series will explore a Judeo-Christian way of approaching dream-work. We will understand that dreaming is present in biblical theology, rooted in anthropology, and found in Church Fathers and Mothers’ teachings. Using critical intuitions from Jungian mysticism, we will learn how to enhance spiritual growth through various dream exercises. This series is for people willing to engage dreams as a pathway for clearer discernment of dreams’ role in their spiritual journey and those involved in the ministry of spiritual direction.
All classes will take place on Wednesday evenings, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Central Time, ONLINE via Zoom.
