Authentic Interiority and Studying Spirituality

Play Video
Dr Michael O’Sullivan’s lecture focuses on authentic interiority as a framework for 1) identifying that we are spiritual, 2) establishing the scope of the field of spirituality study and 3) how to study the field. It provides an opportunity to discover and verify the nature of authentic interiority. It also applies that framework to do a spiritual reading of the lived experience of a girl-child, an atheist, and Jesus when faced with a woman’s infirmity. These readings illustrate the value of authentic interiority as a foundational and methodological framework for revealing spirituality at work in diverse lived situations.
