Live Zoom Online Book Group held as a Wisdom Circle
Trusting in the Mercy of God
by Cynthia Bourgeault (2001)
Once a month starting September 2020 ~ through November
“Mystical Hope is not tied to a good outcome, to the future. It lives a life of its own. It has something to do with presence – not a future good outcome, but the immediate experience of being met, held in communion by something intimately at hand. Rather than deriving these gifts from outward expectations being met, it seems to produce [fruit] from within”. (p. 9 – 10).
In our 3-month Tuesday Wisdom book Circle we will intentionally cultivate Wisdom knowing through:
- Grounding in the Practices of a Wisdom Circle
- Supportive group discussions facilitated by seasoned Wisdom practitioners centering around readings in Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God by Cynthia Bourgeault: 1- 2 chapters a month
- Mindful attentional practices
- Body movements and sacred gesture
This Wisdom Practice book Circle is designed for seekers who want to cultivate a deeper connection with the Wisdom tradition which lies at the headwaters of all sacred paths. As we come together in community, seeking inspiration and practices for our awakening, we will leave with a felt sense of our deepening presence and how we can be of service in the world.
