Islam – Interfaith Studies / Intensive
July 18 @ 9:00 am - July 22 @ 1:00 pm
Islam Themed Intensive
July 18 – 22, 2018
In the month of July, students will study the tradition of Islam. Students will explore the sacred texts of Islam, the Qur’an and Hadith, the Five Pillars of the faith, and also consider the cultural and religious dimensions of Islam in health care and community life. Islamophobia and images of Muslims in the media will be topics of discussion in a class this year. Students will also attend Friday Prayers at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California. In addition to the study of the faith tradition, this module will include social justice education. While focusing on spiritual care, students will explore the elements of prayer and presence, and boundaries and transference.
Our module programs are designed to inspire, nurture and educate those who are called to serve in an Interfaith capacity in our increasingly diverse world or for those who are interested in learning more about a specific faith tradition. Our innovative programs focus on a combination of the study of world religions, an exploration of mystical paths and teachings, and spiritual care and ministry skills… all in a creatively infused context.
Students can take a single module or up to 3 modules total before they are required to apply for the full Interfaith Studies Certificate Program. If one chooses to enroll in the Interfaith Studies Certificate Program following attendance in a single or up to 3 modules, students will be required to complete the necessary homework and coursework associated with those classes to meet the requirements.
The Interfaith Studies Certificate Program prepares students for spiritual service to people of all faiths and paths.
