Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God
by Cynthia Bourgeault
Once a month, August to November 2022 – Hosted by Wisdom Waypoints
At a time when people are yearning for good news, Cynthia Bourgeault’s timeless book invites us to find our way to the hope that does not disappoint or fail. Mystical Hope shows us how to recognize this hope in our own lives, where it comes from, how to deepen it through prayer, and how to carry it into the world as a source of strength and renewal.
Hope fills us with the strength to stay present, to abide in the flow of the Mercy no matter what outer storms assail us. It is entered always and only through surrender; that is, through the willingness to let go of everything we are presently clinging to. And yet when we enter it, it enters us and fills us with its own life — a quiet strength beyond anything we have ever known. ~ Cynthia Bourgeault, from Mystical Hope
In this Foundational Wisdom Book Practice Circle, we will dive deeply into the gifts in Mystical Hope as we intentionally cultivate Wisdom knowing through:
> Grounding in the practices of a Wisdom Circle
> Supportive group discussions facilitated by seasoned Wisdom practitioners, reflecting on a few chapters a month
> Engaging all of our being through mindful attentional practices/Inner Tasks, meditation, body prayer/sacred gesture, and chant
WHO IS THIS WISDOM BOOK CIRCLE FOR?
This Wisdom Book Study and Practice Circle is designed for seekers who want to cultivate a deeper connection with the Wisdom tradition which lies at the headwaters of all sacred paths. As we come together in community, seeking inspiration and practices for our awakening, we will leave with a felt sense of our deepening presence and how we can be of service in the world.
