Mystical Hope | Wisdom Practice Book Circle 2024

August 27

Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God by Cynthia Bourgeault | A Wisdom Book Practice Circle

“We ourselves are not the source of that hope; we do not manufacture it.  But the source dwells deep within us and flows to us with an unstinting abundance, so much so that in fact it might be more accurate to say we dwell within it.”

 – Cynthia Bourgeault,  Mystical Hope

Our next online Wisdom Book Practice Circle will be August through November 2024, hosted by Wisdom Waypoints. 

Mystical Hope

Event Overview
At a time when people are yearning for good news yet may instead feel overwrought by these uniquely challenging times, Cynthia Bourgeault’s timeless book invites us to find our way to a 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.

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 examining a few chapters a month
  • Mindful attentional practices/Inner Tasks
  • Meditation
  • Body movements and sacred gesture

This Wisdom Book 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.
