About This Module

This module will be an exploration of the various attitudes towards death and an examination of the reactions to loss as expressed through grief. Death and dying can present an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth as we explore our losses and share our grief. In order to do this we need to consider the ten essential factors to help the healing process to occur.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the different reactions toward death
  • Explore different tasks faced by the dying
  • Understand the phases of grief
  • Learn practical steps to work through the stages of grief that will bring healing.

As Tyndale Seminary’s programs have had to move online due to the pandemic, the Spiritual Formation Centre Certificate Programs are no exception. Although the in-person classroom is the preferred experience, the online curriculum for the three certificate programs promises to be truly immersive. While maintaining important elements of community through live streaming, conversations will be enhanced by independent study in preparation for each session. Online programming will also offer the opportunity for others to participate who would have otherwise not been able to do to distance and time restrictions.
