Wisdom Practice Book Circles

What is a Wisdom Practice Book Circle?

Our Wisdom Practice Book Circles are designed to cultivate a deeper connection with the Wisdom that lies at the headwaters of all sacred paths, and in particular with our Christian Wisdom lineage highlighted through the teaching of Cynthia Bourgeault. These online gatherings offer inspiration and practices for our awakening presence, guided by long-time Wisdom Community students.

Foundational Wisdom Practice Book Circle Series I

Wisdom Waypoints hosts a four-book Foundational Wisdom Practice Book Circle Series I that engages learners in the principal teachings of our Wisdom lineage. These monthly Zoom sessions are ideal for newcomers to our Wisdom community and for those ready to ‘go deeper in Wisdom.’  Using contemplative practices of Centering Prayer, body prayers, chanting and Lectio Divina, we engage with all three centers of knowing as we delve deeply into the richness these books offer.

Series I includes the following books by Cynthia Bourgeault:

  • Wisdom Way of Knowing: Reclaiming an Ancient Tradition to Awaken the Heart
  • Mystical Hope: Trusting in The Mercy of God
  • The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind
  • Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening

Foundational Wisdom Practice Book Circle Series II
