Buddhist Contemplative Care

EMP2011HS L9101 SESSION: Winter 2022 INSTRUCTOR(S): Shiu, Henry C.H.

COLLEGE: Emmanuel College SCHEDULE: Mon TIME: 14:00 to 16:00

CREDITS: One Credit

Barely existed just a decade ago, Buddhist contemplative care has now become a full force that changes the contemporary practice of Buddhism all over the world, bringing the insights of the ancient wisdom into practical services not only in hospitals, hospices, and prisons, but also through counseling in education and work places. Such pioneering works have redefined the meaning and relevancy of Buddhist practice in the modern world, and has enriched the scope of chaplaincy and ministry which were available only in the Judea-Christian context. This course introduces students to the theory and professional practice of Buddhist contemplative care, through scholarly literature, on the roots of this form of Buddhist engaged practice in various Buddhist traditions, as well as the educational foundations of Buddhist pastoral and spiritual care, the understanding of the Buddhist approach to death and dying, and the art of end-of-life care. Students will also learn from the experiences of successful models of Buddhist contemplative care in North America and Asian countries like Taiwan. The knowledge will also be practical to professional medical caregivers, to allow them to understand the anxiety and fear of their patients with a Buddhist worldview, so as to provide more suitable and meaningful palliative care. The course examines research literature to introduce to the students the developing practice of Buddhist Contemplative Care. Its first section introduces theoretical concepts of contemplative care from the Buddhist tradition, which will be clarified in class through examining various areas of its application. As the student becomes familiar with these theoretical and conceptual propositions, the course will gradually introduce discussions and participation as learning tools to examine twentieth century and current cases.

Pentateuch

WYB2101HS L6101 SESSION: Winter 2022 INSTRUCTOR(S):

COLLEGE: Wycliffe College SCHEDULE: Online

PRE-REQUISITES: WYB1008H CREDITS: One Credit

Context is crucial to effective biblical interpretation in both the academy and the church. Consequently, this course will survey the first five books of the Old Testament with an emphasis on the historical background, ancient near eastern context, and literary structure of each book of the Pentateuch. Students will examine past approaches to important interpretive cruxes in the history of interpretation and will formulate their own approaches. The course emphasizes the ongoing canonical reading and application of the Pentateuchal materials throughout Israel's history, as well as the theological impact of these books. Many of the issues touched on in the Pentateuch have relevance to the life and ministry of the church. As a result, the course will challenge students to reflect on the theological and practical implications of select Pentateuchal passages in order to consider their application to life in the 21 st century.
