‘To be a human being is to be a theologian’
Inner Circle Seminar No. 121
Sunday 18 November 2007
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Our theology is how we live out our significance in the world, says Todd Dubose, Assistant Professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. In today’s seminar, he argues that theology is an action-event in each of our respective life worlds, rather than an abstract academic discipline for the elite. Spirituality, as enactment or comportment of significance, is not ‘tacked onto’ our human existence, or onto the therapeutic encounter. It is inherently a part of, and inseparable from, being human and being therapeutic – whether or not client or therapist explicitly use religious or theological language. From a daseinsanalytic perspective, each of us is Homo Religiosus: inherently religious. We already and always live out religious significance in each and every concrete moment of our lives. You are welcome to bring examples from your life or practice to confirm or challenge these ideas.
