Recordings by Cynthia Bourgeault

Conscious Love

In this newly revised teaching, Cynthia Bourgeault explores how conscious love flows from our deeper selves, beyond identification, craving, wanting, and needing.

By living from this deep and ever present wellspring,…

Contemplative Remembering

How can ancient contemplative skills contribute to the needs of today’s world? In this teaching, Cynthia Bourgeault offers a compelling answer.

Deepening the Practice of Centering Prayer

In this five-day deep immersion retreat, Cynthia moves beyond the scope of introductory Centering Prayer material to focus on the true self and its expression in the world around us.

The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three

In her book, The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three, Cynthia Bourgeault explores the hidden—or forgotten—nature of the traditional Christian symbol, the Trinity. She enriches Christian theology and history on the subject with G.I. Gurdjieff’s Laws of Three and Seven, discovering a guiding principle to help mend and evolve Christianity, humanity, and our relationship to the…

Through Holy Week with Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene is the apostle to the apostles, a wisdom teacher, a contemplative, a woman of spiritual purity, a bold and tenacious witness, and Jesus’ beloved companion—these views of the so-called healed prostitute are unfamiliar to most of us; nevertheless, they are views supported by growing evidence from biblical and ancient text scholarship. Cynthia Bourgeault…

Christophany: Experiencing the Fullness of Christianity

Delving deeply in Raimon Panikkar’s book Christophany: The Fullness of Man, Cynthia Bourgeault deftly illuminates this extraordinary cosmological vision, and boldly asserts “…these are ideas that could change the face of Christianity!”
