A strong spiritual life benefits your overall health, longevity, and resistance to disease, supports greater happiness including stress reduction, and lessens the incidence of depression and other mental and emotional disorders.

These 15 lectures explore wellness from its biblically-based origins, through medieval monasticism and medical education, the divorce of science and religion in the Enlightenment, to the recovery of holistic medicine in the 20th century. You will next examine topics of current interest in the area of health and spirituality, including diet and nutrition, the place of sleep and dreaming, clothing, grooming, and exercise, mental health issues, pain, suffering, and healing, death and dying, the role of prayer in health and healing, and issues regarding miraculous healing.

Fr. Richard Woods, O.P., brings you the very latest research and sound theology in this pivotal new course.

Fr. Richard Woods, O.P., Ph.D., S.T.M. is currently professor of theology at Dominican University in River Forest, IL, where he was honored with the role of Lund-Gill Chair in 2010. Other highlights of his teaching career include his professorship at Oxford University’s Blackfriars Hall and his reception of the Aquinas Scholar title from the Aquinas Center of Theology at Emory University.

Having published 13 books and over 100 articles, Fr. Woods’ prolific writing has spanned topics from medieval mysticism to contemporary spirituality; and his penchant for story-telling has led him to publish fictional literature, as well. The religious imagination of the Celts has informed several of his fictional and non-fictional works alike. Often, his writing has come to life in the Irish countryside itself, in the 150-year-old cottage called Dragonthorn that serves as a place of retreat for Fr. Woods.
