Spiritual Autobiography


Exploration of stories of inner experience, the growth of self-awareness, the dark night of the soul, and the role of suffering in individuals' lives. Reading from a variety of spiritual autobiographies from around the world, by both believers and non-, we will explore the meaning of storytelling and how our various beliefs can shape our understanding of the world. Assignments include autobiographical writing as well as more traditional essays. (Gen.Ed. AL, DG)
