Into the Ground of Being: The Ongoing Quest with Ward Bauman
“When you give birth to that which is within yourself, what you bring forth will save you,” Jesus is quoted as saying in the Gospel of Thomas (#70). This retreat is geared to help develop our inner authority or “sovereignty,” as the Gospel of Thomas states. This preeminent spiritual work is at the core of human development.
Join us for this silent retreat. Exploring ancient Christian texts, we will practice their methods for coming to know the Christ within, that “Word” being spoken, but to which we are usually deaf. All teaching will be geared to this endeavor as we work to discover those practices that can increase our awareness of our inner treasure. Students will leave with a stronger sense of their own inner domain and its resources.
The only prerequisite is prior experience in contemplative prayer and/or meditation.
