Abstract

We learn a great deal without words, or even an awareness that we are learning something. In academic psychology this is called implicit learning, but the focus of this research has not had any theological or spiritual implications. We can think about this as implicit spiritual learning to convey a non-conscious process. Spiritual learning is a kind of emotional learning, a term used in some therapeutic circles (Ecker, et al. 2013). Emotional learning is more general, but both are about the same process. The most straightforward version of this learning occurs before we can use words.
