Have you been teaching Life to the Full in your primary school or secondary school? Has it sparked your interest in the Church teaching on relationships, marriage and family life? In this three-part webinar (3 x 90-minute sessions), we will go under the bonnet of the teaching which has inspired the programme Life to the Full.
The ‘Theology of the Body’ (TOB) is the collective term given to the teaching delivered by Pope John Paul II over a series of 129 ‘Wednesday audiences’ between 1979 and 1984. This introduction to the ‘Theology of the Body’ will give:
- An overview of the core principles of TOB
- An exploration of how this applies to real-world situations, including reference to the Life to the Full programme
- An introduction to some of the best thinkers and interpreters of TOB throughout the world
If you know little or nothing about this ground-breaking teaching, our introduction to TOB will provide an inspirational roadmap to not only support you in a professional capacity as a teacher, it will also inspire you in your relationships with your partner/spouse, family and friends.
