Cynthia Bourgeault is a modern-day mystic, Episcopal priest, writer, and internationally known retreat leader. She divides her time between solitude at her seaside hermitage in Maine and a demanding schedule traveling globally to teach and spread the recovery of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths. She is profiled in our Living Spiritual Teachers project, and this is the 12th e-course she has presented through Spirituality & Practice.
We are excited about this offering because it delves into some ancient Wisdom roadmaps that many of us may not be familiar with and yet which hold the key to understanding what’s happening in our world (why are we so polarized, unable to take the steps needed to address global problems?) and where the path of healing lies. These perennial maps speak of mutually nurturing realms of being bound together by a continuous energy exchange.
In this e-course, Cynthia specifically explores the gifts of the imaginal realm that can help us adopt a larger perspective and make a difference today using the cosmic assistance available to us all. She introduces the teachings in her latest book, Eye of the Heart: A Spiritual Journey into the Imaginal Realm, but approaches the material afresh — cognizant that we are in a worldwide pandemic and that the first presentation of this program was during Lent in 2021.
This e-course consists of:
- 13 emails with an essay by Cynthia Bourgeault, a text and questions for your conscious reflection, and a spiritual practice to try;
- a link to watch recordings of two Zoom sessions with Cynthia held during the first run of the e-course during which Cynthia answered questions and offered additional teachings.
At the risk of sounding too casual, let us say that in these times, we need all the help we can get. Join us to discover how to tap into and offer some cosmic help more intentionally.
