Depression and Spirituality have often been uneasy companions. Religion has often suggested that the sufferer may just variously just have to get over it; ignore it; let god look after it or hope that it will go away. And yet others have spoken of the worth of the “dark night of the soul”…
Join us at the Cafe of Dangerous Ideas as we hear from Matt Glover, who works with MGA Counselling Services. Matt will be helping us look at some of the ideas behind the intersection of spirituality and depression.
You’re welcome from 7.15 onwards to join us the Sycamore Tree Cafe – 185 Burgundy Street Heidelberg. (Enquiries – 0409 180176)
