Event Details:
Spirituality has in recent years garnered vastly increased attention in academic as well as in practitioner’s circles, both within and without Christian churches. Spirituality is a board concept that can refer not only to one’s state of inner being, but also a motivating force driving people for religious quest, ethical activities, psychological wellness and even social transformation.
As a multidisciplinary exploration, spirituality is the subject of study in a wide range of academic field, such as religious studies, theology, psychology, education, sociology, anthropology, etc.
This conference aims to:
• Explore the roles of spiritual leadership in contemporary society with various tensions, i.e. economics
• Investigate why social entrepreneurship is a way of spiritual practice in Hong Kong
• Study how to create an environment to nurture young spiritual leaders
• Explore the practice and transformation of spiritual leaders
