Aspirations which restore quality to life

Aspirations which restore quality to life

Recently the spiritual dimension of our humanness has been added to the 'official' therapeutic mix of evidence-based and psychological medicines.   Controversy persists over just what we should mean by the term 'spiritual', but, broadly speaking,  ‘spirituality’ embraces an aspirational approach, whether religious or secular, to the living of human life.  It embraces notions of relationship, quality, meaning and appropriate conduct that are largely absent from conventional medicine.

The Dunedin School of Medicine has a strategy group which studies Spirituality and Well-Being.  Leading that group is Richard Egan who is this week's guest In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Face Television.  

'In Conversation with Noel Cheer', Face Television, Monday November 11th at 7:00pm, repeated on Tuesday November 12th at 12 noon.

Face Television, the home of public broadcasting, is found on Sky Television Channel 083. It can also be received in the Auckland region on UHF Channels 41, 42 and 52 until December 1st.  It is  live-streamed on www.ecasttv.co.nz.  The website www.facetv.co.nz carries programme schedules.   Some past episodes of In Conversation can be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/NoelCheer

"In Conversation with Noel Cheer" receives funding from New Zealand on Air.  This has enabled us to introduce viewers to over 280 New Zealanders on Air (as well as a few visitors to New Zealand) during nearly seven years of unbroken weekly public-interest broadcasting.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
