On Thursday 28 April we are delighted to be joined by Dr Mark Vernon who  will present his latest book "Dante’s Divine Comedy: A Guide for the  Spiritual Journey".   Dante’s Divine Comedy changes lives. The  genius of the transformative path that he charts through hell, purgatory  and paradise was recognised as soon as his wonderful poem was  published, 700 years ago. The darkness took on fresh meaning. The divine  light became steadily brilliant. And he wrote for the future too – for  those who are modern, as he put it. So what can the Divine Comedy offer  us today? How can a way be found into its labyrinth?  Psychotherapist  and writer, Mark Vernon, talks about his new book and how Dante not  only helps us discern life’s sufferings, but opens the heart and mind to  the glorious vision that awaits us all: the realisation that our life  and God’s life is one life.  He argues that Dante is needed more  than ever because, nowadays, we live in a time in which all can be  mystics and many yearn to live by with that awareness. The Inferno is  widely celebrated in our culture. The Purgatorio often makes therapeutic  sense. But it is only when you follow him through the Paradiso, Dante  insisted, that desire finds its goal and the mind locates its rest. This  talk will aim to show how Dante can be a guide now.
