Introductory sessions to The Theology of the Body according to St. John Paul II
At the heart of the desire to be happy and free
Every day, social media, advertisements and entertainment present us with countless images of sex unhindered by any limits or rules promising happiness and freedom. However, in our experience, we seem more confused than ever about sexuality and the relationship between men and women. Is there anyone who can help us navigate through this constant bombardment of ideas and images to develop a mature and free sexuality? Is it possible to be happy today? Is it possible that our desires for love and intimacy are not only good and holy, but truly designed by God?
►Why were we created men and women?
►Where do we come from and why?
►What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
► How do I discover “body language” and how it can help me discover the meaning of my life?
►Is the Church’s teaching on sexuality still relevant today?
In four evening sessions, we will explore the key principles of body theology. Together we will discover how God’s mysterious plan for our lives is revealed by our bodies and by the call to love. Attendance at all four sessions is recommended to ensure maximum understanding and learning of the content.
