The Afterlife

Our first free online course, The Afterlife, will launch this spring, on Monday, April 13th. The course provides a detailed exploration of the vision of the afterlife presented by Emanuel Swedenborg. Swedenborg’s account is remarkably vivid and human, coalescing around themes of free will, individuality and community, and the promise that all are led to whom and what they love.

The course is divided into eight sessions which you can take at your own pace, while also interacting with others enrolled in the course if you so choose.

If you would like to reserve a place in the course, please register below, and instructions on how to join the course will be sent to your email address.
