The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind –
A New Perspective on Christ and His Message

by Cynthia Bourgeault (2008)

Monthly February 2 –June 1, 2023 – Hosted by Wisdom Waypoints of United Kingdom

In The Wisdom Jesus the angle of approach will be to see Jesus first and foremost as a wisdom teacher, a person who clearly emerges out of and works within an ancient tradition called “wisdom,” known sometimes as sophia perennis, which is in fact at the headwaters of all the great religious traditions of the world today.  It’s concerned with the transformation of the whole human being. Transformation from what to what? Well, for a starter, from our animal instincts and egocentricity into love and compassion; from a judgmental and dualistic worldview into a nondual acceptingness. This was the message that Jesus, apparently out of nowhere, came preaching and teaching, a message that was radical in its own time and remains equally radical today. (p.4)

The Wisdom Jesus

In this Foundational Wisdom Book Practice Circle, we will dive deeply into the gifts in The Wisdom Jesus 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



The Wisdom Jesus invites us to explore Jesus as primarily a wisdom teacher who sets forth a unique and distinctive path of transformation of the whole human being.

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.
