Module Description

The workaday world brings many challenges. ‘Life is difficult’, as M. Scott Peck noted. Art and literature can help us to meet these challenges by putting us in touch with sources of inspiration, horizons of hope, visions and dreams, the better angels of our nature. This module explores these gifts and their invitation to ‘cast our awful solemnity to the winds’ and come join ‘the cosmic dance’ (Thomas Merton).

Brian Dooney, PhD, works with Age and Opportunity, the leading national development organisation improving the quality of life of people aged 50-100+. He develops and delivers programmes on positive ageing, drawing on the arts as a source of inspiration and hope. Previously, he worked as a lecturer in English and Adult Education in All Hallows College/DCU (2004-2016), presenting a range of modules in relation to Literature, Spirituality & the Arts; Creative Writing; Media & Critical Awareness.
