Welcome to an introductory course on both practice and perspectives of these timeless teachings from the Christian Mystical and Contemplative traditions! Whether you are a long-time practitioner looking to solidify your understanding and framework for practice or a beginner interested in immersing yourself in this teaching, this course can serve as a rich resource.
This essential course on Christian Mysticism combines a look at practices and background, teaching and historical development of Christian Mysticism.
Part I of the course examines in-depth traditional practices of the Christian mystics, including:
Part II of the course takes a close look at the tradition of Christian mysticism through both ancient and modern lenses using the practice of The Jesus Prayer as a jumping off point to illuminate the contemplative path in both theory and practice, including:
Our aim as practitioners and teachers is to offer these ancient teachings in relevant and accessible ways to a modern audience, and to integrate these teachings and practices more deeply into our everyday lives.
This combined course (normally $147) is available for $97 until October 20th.
If you have already purchased our Contemplative Practices or Contemplative Perspectives courses, they are integrated into one combined course here as Part I and Part II. If you would like to take the other, we encourage you to purchase those separately.
