Theology of the Body I: Head and Heart Immersion

February 7-12, 2021

San Pedro Spiritual Development Center

Winter Park, Florida -- Diocese of Orlando

Taught by Christopher West

Course Description:


The Theology of the Body Institute is happy to partner with the Diocese of Orlando to offer our flagship Theology of the

Body I: Head & Heart Immersion Course in the Orlando area!


We wish to thank Most Reverend John Noonan for his support and invitation to bring TOB to the Diocese of Orlando. "I write this letter to formally welcome the Theology of the Body Institute to the Diocese of Orlando! Know that catechists, teachers, priests, deacons, and religious throughout the Diocese will be encouraged to participate." - Most Reverend John Noonan


This course introduces students to the key themes of the 129 Wednesday audience addresses that comprise John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.  Particular attention will be paid to the imago Dei, fall and redemption, Christian ethics and ethos, freedom and person, gender and vocation.  Students will be encouraged to journey from “head to heart” in applying the theological concepts they learn to their own lives and relationships.


All our week-long retreats include:

  • Five days of learning & interactive lecture (30 hours of master’s level instruction)
  • Fantastic workbook so you can focus on receiving vs. note-taking
  • Daily Mass, adoration, and confession
  • Accommodations & delicious meals
  • Time for relaxation and networking
  • Gorgeous grounds to soak in God’s natural beauty
  • Optional round trip shuttle from Orlando International Airport
