Practicing Spirituality at Work (Spirituality & Practice)


This e-course is specifically designed to help you practice your spirituality at work. Insights from the marvelous spiritual writers whose books we review have certainly helped us find meaning, purpose, and joy in our workdays.

In his fine book The Reinvention of Work (see below), Matthew Fox recalled the words of mystic Meister Eckhart: “The outward work can never be small if the inward one is great, and the outward work can never be great or good if the inward is small or of little worth.” This 40-part e-course is about doing the inner work necessary to make your outer work more meaningful.

Our teachers will be Matthew Fox, Lewis Richmond, Jeffrey Salkin, Frederick Buechner, Thomas Moore, Jose Hobday, Thomas Merton, David Whyte, Marsha Sinetar, Joan Chittister, and others. Each quote will be matched to a practice that you can do at work during the day. We’ll cover such common challenges as envy, comparisons, expectations, boredom, repetition, time, speed, and ambition, and we’ll suggest ways to practice presence, kindness, gratitude, silence, play, and joy in the workplace.

(6 CEHs for Chaplains available.)
