Prof. Melinda Papaccio reflects on Self-Transcendence and the Higher Viewpoint: Seeing as if through the eyes of the Divine in the last of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths. The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The fourth retreat, given by Prof. Melinda Papaccio on the theme of Self-Transcendence and the Higher Viewpoint: Seeing as if through the eyes of the Divine will be held on Wednesday, March 21, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the Faculty Lounge (note changed location.)
For centuries the Catholic tradition has prompted us to be self-transcendent, to go beyond the limitations of the ego and to see our world, our problems, and ourselves from what is called the higher viewpoint. While the relationship between self-transcendence and the higher viewpoint is authenticated and enhanced by our Catholic faith tradition, it can be transformative for those of other faiths as well. In this session we will consider the perspective of this elevated viewpoint, which enables us to see as if through the eyes of the Divine.
