The Body in Christian faith

The Body in Christian Faith

A programme is being developed at this centre which seeks to address how the loss of connection with the human body can be recovered in Christian spirituality. It is ironic that the centrality of the human body has been lost in Christian faith even though it is Christianity alone which professes that God became fully incarnate in the human person of Jesus Christ. This objective is pursued in direct response to the number of people who have recourse to hatha yoga, mindfulness and other Eastern spiritual practices arising from the absence of finding ways of connecting with God, through the human body, within the tradition of Christian faith. This emphasis is also seen as increasingly important because of emerging transhumanist philosophies in gender and anthropology, which deny the truth of the human body and the complementarity of man and woman.
