Learning the Language of the Soul – a talk by Dr Andrew Mayes

How can we describe to others what is happening to us on our spiritual journey? How can we depict the spiritual road that we are taking—experiences of prayer, transitions that we travel through, impediments that we face—and externalize into words the interior experiences?
In this reflective afternoon, Dr Andrew Mayes explores creative and inspirational metaphors to equip anyone wanting to communicate effectively about their spiritual journey and resource those curious about the riches of the Christian tradition. The afternoon, based on his new book Learning the Language of the Soul (Liturgical Press 2016), offers images from both the classic Christian tradition and contemporary culture that help us express and develop a spiritual literacy by which we share with others the joys and struggles of the inner life.
Rev Dr Andrew Mayes is an international teacher of spirituality and author. He is currently spirituality adviser to the Anglican Diocese of Chichester.
