CCS Seminar: The uncomfortable place of spirituality and religion in the struggle for liberation

This event has been cancelled and will be re-scheduled in due course.

Speaker: Brian Minga Amza
Date: Wednesday 18 March 2020
Time: 13h00-14h00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room A726, Level 7, Shepstone, Howard College, UKZN

In both the woke and unconscious community is the question of religion and spirituality or rather religion as opposed to spirituality. Various ambiguities, confusion and abuse arise with respect to theology and the multiplicity of cults and denominations. In this seminar I will explore the difference between religion and spirituality and then examine how the phenomenon of spirituality is creating new paradigms of consciousness and how these have impacted on liberation struggles in Africa. My aim is to provoke thought and space for constructive dialogue to pave the way for transformation.
