UNCP 5533 Capstone: Desire and Discernment (Fall/Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course aims to help students review the process of their education and preview the process of making long-term commitments by taking a long, loving look how we experience desire, and how we act upon those desires to construct a life well lived. The course will first expose students to spiritual practices of discernment, rooted in the Ignatian and Benedictine spiritual traditions. Second, it will involve careful thinking about stories of discernment which involve the sorting and pruning of desire. Discussions will reflect on these stories, in order to help each other consider what they mean for our own lives.
