The interaction of scholarship and personal experience is important for the understanding arising from academic studies. It is particularly important in relation to the understanding of spiritual or religious teachings which explore, and focus on, the transformation of the self.
These transformations of the self maybe seen in terms of :
- physical materiality
- day to day functioning
- aims, values and duties
The co-existence of personal and pedagogic aims of both scholars and practitioners in their experience of a spiritual discipline opens up areas of interest.
This page offers an online space where thoughts and experience of these and related matters may be explored.
