It was the Real Talk Team's pleasure to host Dr Adam Cooper, PhD for our Theology of the Body Weekend immersion this year. Held from Friday 24 February to Sunday 26 February, Dr Cooper broke open John Paul II's widely known teachings, Theology of the Body.
We kicked off on Friday evening with a free open public lecture at Lavalla Centre, Paddington, with over 80 people in attendance. It served as a great introduction into TOB for those who have not explore the topic before, and definitely sparked the desire for many to delve ever deeper into the teachings.
The weekend continued on Saturday and Sunday with over 40 people in attendance with Dr Cooper continued to lead us through the richness of Theology of the Body. He commented that with each lecture he felt as if he was still only scratching the surface.
For those who were not able to make it, please feel free to search through the internet or get your hands on some books around TOB and check it out for yourself! We have had such great feedback from those who attended and look forward to hearing what fruit come of the weekend.
Real Talk also has an extensive library on topics around TOB, relationships, sexuality and identity. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if there's a particular title you're after that we might be able to lend you.
