Course Overview:
Spirituality & Sex: Heavenly Pleasures and Earthly Delights provides students with the opportunity to examine the importance of sex to religious and spiritual life. Primarily focusing on Western culture and religious movements, this course will explore both ancient traditions as well as modern day lived experiences where issues of sex and sexuality intersect with particular religious traditions. It will highlight how religions employ sex and the paradox of religion both promoting and concealing sex and sexuality.


Learning objectives:


In this course students will:


• Learn how sex and sexuality are key elements of religious and spiritual experience.

• Learn how religions prescribe for and respond to biological processes of the body, and sexual practices.

• Explore personal values and attitudes regarding sex and sexuality within the broader framework of both social and religious environments.

• Learn to ask critical questions as to how religious rituals, doctrines, and moral codes influence and affect one own experience of sex and sexuality and their relationships with those around them.
