The William Blevins Institute for Spirituality and Mental Health
The Blevins Institute for Spirituality & Mental Health at Carson Newman University offers a non-credit certificate program in spirituality. This program is designed for persons interested in the study and practice of spiritual traditions and practices. Participants will be introduced to the major aspects of spiritual formation and how spiritual practices can nurture personal growth and strengthen holistic well-being. This program will also provide guidance in facilitating the spiritual formation of others, as well as effective skills in caring for persons in crisis and need. The certificate will be awarded to participants who successfully complete seven adult education courses offered by the Institute. Hidden Grace: Growing Through Loss and Grief is the first of these courses. Others will be added to the curriculum in the near future and participants can choose the courses that meet their own needs and interests.
