Welcome to Wisdom Waypoints
We are a growing network of Wisdom seekers around the globe supporting one another as we work with our founding teacher Cynthia Bourgeault to reclaim the Christian Wisdom path.
What is a Wisdom Waypoint?
A waypoint is a specific location en route to your destination, allowing you to check your position, mark your progress, and stay on course as you journey forward. Imagine our globe encircled by a network of wisdom waypoints keeping the ship on course as our planet journeys along its imaginal trajectory.
Cynthia Bourgeault is a modern-day mystic, Episcopal priest, writer, and internationally known retreat leader. She divides her time between solitude and sailing the waters around her seaside hermitage in Maine and a demanding schedule traveling globally to teach and spread the recovery of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths. Cynthia is a core faculty emeritus at the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has been honored by the annual Watkins Review as one of the 100 most spiritually influential living people in 2021.
