This course is a continuation of Cynthia’s Introductory Wisdom School, delving deeply into the principle of exchange (“giving-is-receiving”), the spiritual foundation of The Christian Wisdom tradition.
Cynthia Bourgeault is a long-time student of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths and is a core faculty member of the CAC and Living School. Christian Wisdom teachings have existed since the earliest days of Christianity; Cynthia teaches from that ancient perspective in ways that suit today’s world.
Join Cynthia as she leads you on a path of discovery through The Divine Exchange, her metaphysical framework for the Christian Wisdom tradition. Cynthia teaches on the power of exchange: giving and receiving in a framework that embraces everything—information, goods, energy, sustenance, etc. She weaves that give-and-take into an interdependence of existence that is dynamically and divinely animated.
Seeing that dynamism of exchange as a dance of abundance epitomized in the Trinity, Cynthia reveals this idea of exchange as being the heart of God and the ground of the Christian Wisdom path. Cynthia invites you to carry these teachings forward as part of your life, supported by practices designed to help you take this wisdom into your body.
Note: This course has teachings that are built on Cynthia’s foundational material and would not work well for students new to this path. A prerequisite for this course is the online Introductory Wisdom School course or any of Cynthia’s introductory, in-person Wisdom Schools.
