LEARN | Spiritual Education & Enrichment (SEE)

The Spiritual Education and Enrichment (SEE) courses are meant and designed to be more than just “head” or intellectual knowledge. They are intended to support critical thinking, individual exploration, and deepening and maturing of spiritual understanding and practices

Casual learners are welcome too - no assignments are required - come and join fellow explorers on the spiritual path!

An update from the Adult Education
Coordinator, Wendy Karr LUT
