  • Whole brain spirituality in light of transdisciplinary theology

This is a research project aimed at gathering information on the spiritual emphasis and uses in Dutch Reformed Church congregations. Solutionsfinding will gather the information by means of a web-based questionnaire. Dr. Gys M. Loubser will utilise the information in two ways. First, the information will be used to identify the spiritual preferences of DRC congregations in relation to the development of transdisciplinary theologians. Second, the information will be used to investigate the emerging spiritual communities outside the dogmatic contours of the DRC.
