Human persons grow and thrive when they live in harmony and balance with all aspects of their nature. Our nature is what it is to be a human being. We also have natural inner inclinations that lead us towards the fullness of life. This is referred to as Natural Law.
This unit examines how an understanding of Natural Law and living a moral life can help us to grow and thrive. Understanding our human nature and being drawn towards ‘the good’ by our conscience can lead to ethical decision making in our relationships, as well as making healthy choices for ourselves and all others we are in relationship with.
As Human beings it is within our Nature to ‘give and receive love’. As part of the journey towards becoming an honourable mature adult, we will examine how our choices can build healthy communities.
