Abstract

This research starts by defining the related areas of psycho-spiritual studies and gives the background history to the subject and the researcher. It relays the educational influences of contemporary spirituality and introduces the work of a psycho-spiritual learning programme. In the literature review it discusses seminal and current writing on the subject theorising the validity of educational practises in this field, it also compares and contrasts known models of spiritual development. The thesis argues the case for the methodology and methods of a qualitative formative evaluation of a psycho-spiritual programme that uses intuition as an instrument for spiritual Self-development. The thesis discuses the implementation of the mixed methods. The data is analysed by the collection of experiences of the individuals who have undertaken the programme and the effects it had on their personal lives (lived experiences). Finally it locates the work within contemporary environment and looks whether it has any value for spiritual education in the future.
