A video course at Seminary Now based on Curt Thompson's book from InterVarsity Press.
DISCOVERING THE NEUROSCIENCE OF LONGING, BEAUTY, AND COMMUNITY
Both our craving to be known and our ability to create beauty have been marred by trauma and shame, collapsing our imagination for what God has for us and blinding us to the possibility that beauty could ever emerge from our ashes. Drawing on his work in interpersonal neurobiology and clinical practice, Dr. Curt Thompson presents a powerful picture of the capacity of the believing community to reshape our imaginations, hold our desires and griefs together, and invite us into the beauty of God’s presence.
In this course, Thompson weaves together neuroscience and spiritual formation to open up new horizons for thinking not only about the nature of the mind, but about what it means to be human.
