Online Wisdom Practice Book Circles

Northeast Wisdom/Wisdom Waypoints has launched a two-year, four-book Foundational Wisdom Practice Book Circle Series that includes: The Wisdom Way of Knowing, Mystical Hope, The Wisdom Jesus, and Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening. These Wisdom books engage learners in the foundational teaching of our Wisdom lineage.

Wisdom Practice Book Circles are designed for seekers who want to cultivate a deeper connection with the Wisdom tradition which lies at the headwaters of all sacred paths. Ideal for newcomers to our Wisdom community and for those ready to ‘go deeper in Wisdom’, these Wisdom circles offer inspiration and practices for our awakening presence.

Each month these book circles offer:

  • Grounding in the practices of a Wisdom Circle
  • Supportive group discussions facilitated by seasoned Wisdom practitioners examining the readings in each foundational Wisdom text
  • Mindful attentional practices and Inner Tasks
  • Meditation and Chant
  • Body movements and sacred gesture

Circle Times: Each Wisdom book series is offered on one Tuesday a month at three different times for the convenience of participants. Select the time that suits your schedule when you RSVP: 10:00 – 11:30am ET, 1:00- 2:30 pm ET, or 7 – 8:30 pm ET. Many people are zooming in from different time zones and countries. All are welcome!

Contribute: There is typically a suggested donation (a one-time donation per book series) of $60 – $100 (or an amount that is sustainable for you), depending on the circle duration. Donation details are noted when you RSVP.

  4. Hi Marcella ~

    Thank you for the details about the Wisdom book circles.

    Who will be leading the upcoming August offering?

  5. May I enquire is the donation per month or for the whole group in the particular book series being studied
    Thank you

  6. These classes are phenomenal. Stirring, peaceful, practical. I look forward to the next one.
    Thank you

  7. Hello friends,
    To respond to the questions above, the $60-100 is a ONE time donation per book series (one donation per book). There is a group of seasoned Wisdom facilitators who offer these Book Practice Circles…each group is co-led by 2 facilitators. Group size is typically 12 – 26.
    Hope this helps! I would say…’come and see’!
    Marcella
