Midrash and Theopoetics in Ignatian Spirituality

Monday, 31, August 2020 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Tikkun olam refers to the Jewish imperative to engage in acts which heal the world’s wounds. Both theopoetics and engaging in Midrash contribute towards such healing. Theopoetics is a way to do religious reflection that gives particular attention to poetic, narrative and artistic responses to a sacred text, as well as validating experience and bodily responses. So it sits as a comfortable sister alongside the tradition of midrash, where we enter into the scenes and lives of biblical texts, in order to portray the silences and voice that which is silenced. You do not need to be a poet, writer or artist. Just come with your imagination and the desire to foster healing. This course offers fresh ways to draw alongside others if we are in any of the caring professions.

Maximum 12 participants allows each session to have participation in small private breakout groups with a facilitator present in each group
