“It is to the mystics we owe what is best in humanity.” —Carl Jung
2012 is upon us and I can’t think of a better way to ring it in than by studying the best in us through the lives and teachings of the three mystics: Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart. (Hildegard, by the way, is being declared a saint and “doctor of the church” in the Fall after an 800 year wait.)
I hope you will join me for my free “Meet the Mystics,” teleconference on January 12, 2012, and deepen into the experience with my nine-week telecourse, “The Pioneers of Consciousness,” starting January 26.
During the nine-week course, each of these mystics will be covered in depth for three 90-minute sessions. Our explorations will provide you with:
· A deepening of your own self-knowledge and awareness
· The expansion of your consciousness of beauty, of suffering, of creativity and of courage and compassion
· A deepening into your vocation to say Yes to Life (mysticism) and No to injustice (prophecy or spiritual warriorhood)
· Discovery of a rhythm in your life along the spiritual way of the Four Paths, a way that assists you to live in hope in a time of darkness and to live life more deeply and less superficially
· Empowerment for transforming society and your work profession with spiritual values worth fighting for
· A link with the ancestors (or communion of saints) that ignites your moral imagination and bolsters your courage to make a difference in the world
Both programs are sponsored by CSource and will use MaestroConference, a state-of-the-art telephone conferencing platform that allows interaction, Q&A, discussion, and even small breakout groups to process the material and network with classmates. Plus, we will have a web-based social network where you can connect with other members of the course and continue your conversations.
The primary text for the course is Christian Mystics: 365 Readings and Meditations. Class participants receive a 20% discount on all orders in January when they order from Friends of Creation Spirituality. This book was recognized by Library Journal as one of the best spiritual books of 2011.
