Movies, Monks, and Heroes: Finding Meaning and Success through Authenticity

SPIR 468 03A (1) | August Turak

July 21 - 25, 2014-- 1:00-4:15 P.M.


Is authenticity the new holiness? Authenticity holds the secret to success in our personal, professional, and spiritual lives. Even business experts now argue that economic success emerges from "authentic brands" and "authentic products" managed by "authentic leaders." Yet what exactly is authenticity? How do we get it and how do we teach it? And what is the relationship between authenticity and spirituality? This course will use a blend of reading, movies, exercises, Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey and especially the monastic tradition to answer these questions. As much a guided adventure as a traditional class, students will learn how to live a more meaningful, successful, and spiritually fulfilling life by becoming more authentic individuals. REGISTER HERE
