We are building a resource for online courses from others in the Wisdom network. For the moment, we only have Cynthia’s courses. But these should get you started.
Cynthia offers two kinds of online courses: full online video courses and e-courses. Both are offered through partnering organizations.
The Center for Action and Contemplation has produced three online courses: An Introductory Wisdom School, and its follow-up Wisdom course called “The Divine Exchange.” It also offers Cynthia’s highly popular course of Mary Magdalene: Apostle to Our Own Times. These courses are fully interactive and have set starting dates and registration periods. You’ll see the full details at Center for Action and Contemplation — and when you click on the course here as well.
In Shambhala Publication’s online course, The Way of the Wisdom Jesus, Cynthia shares Jesus’ teaching through the lens of nonduality and letting go. The course includes videos, readings, and downloadable PDFs.
We are very pleased to announce the arrival of the long awaited Imaginal Wisdom School E-course, accompanying and expanding Cynthia’s groundbreaking book Eye of the Heart. This course, filmed live at the pilot Imaginal Wisdom School in North Carolina, August 2020, was carefully edited and produced by longtime collaborator Robbin Brent and is suitable for either individual or group use with a flexible starting date.
Spirituality and Practice has developed numerous e-courses featuring Cynthia’s work. Self-paced email lessons include written reflections, audio or video recordings, and contemplative practices. Learn more about the following courses at Spirituality and Practice, or by clicking on the specific item in the listing below.
See below for descriptions of many of Cynthia’s online course offerings as well as direct links to purchase and participate in each course.
