Wisdom Way of Knowing 3-Day Mini Wisdom School with Marcella Kraybill-Greggo


Please note: this Event is full.

This MINI WISDOM SCHOOL will introduce the rhythm and tools of a ‘Wisdom way of knowing’, or an ‘integral way of knowing’, which engages and harmonizes our three intelligence centers: heart, mind and movement. Each Wisdom School day will involve both a teaching component and an experiential portion, with a balance of centering, teaching, lectio divina and gentle body prayer.  

Each month we will also engage Wisdom  teachings by Cynthia Bourgeault. Together we will unpack these ‘deep and wide’ Wisdom pearls, putting them into practice throughout our Wisdom School day.  This mini Wisdom school is particularly relevant  for (but not limited to) spiritual directors; engaging all three centers of knowing expands our capacity and the dimensions for listening and engaging the Divine. 

Dates and times:
Friday February 19, 2021
Friday, March 19, 2021
Friday, April 16, 2021

Registration cost of $350 is for all 3 days, there is no option to register for individual days.

This past January 20, many in our larger Wisdom community joined together with a National Moment of Unity and Remembrance in honor and memory of those who have died from COVID.

In light of our ongoing need to tend our grief and welcome others’ grief in these times, we wish to continue offering these circles once a month. May these circles provide a place for our community to hold all the forms that grief may take — personal loss of all types, planetary suffering, the deep pain of racist oppression, pandemic-related sickness and death, the loss of community rituals. Together we bring our wholeness to bear this grief.

In Wisdom practice circle style, we will offer a rhythm of chanting, sitting and embodied practice. Please feel free to light a candle, and bring your own bells or bowls for ringing if you like. All are welcome!

Introductory Wisdom School with Cynthia Bourgeault


This 14-week course explores the Wisdom way of knowing and growing. Cynthia invites us to awaken to our yearning for a different kind of presence and to develop the skills, knowledge, and actions for our own transformation. No prior experience with Cynthia’s Wisdom Schools is required; however we do recommend some familiarity with Cynthia’s books or talks. This course serves as the prerequisite to any of the advanced Wisdom Schools Cynthia provides. It will also qualify students to continue with the Divine Exchange course, (Part II of Introductory Wisdom) beginning later this year (June 15-Sept 21).

Cost: $15 per person

Friday March 5, 7:00 pm to noon Sunday March 7
Reconfiguration of an in-person retreat to a Zoom conference retreat

Join us! For a practical engagement of the Wisdom lineage through the lens of the Enneagram. How can this map illuminate our habitual patterns so that we might soften our identification? How might it guide us in tracking all three centers of knowing so that we bring more of ourselves into Presence? How might we surrender more fully our attachments and habits as we shift the quality of our attention?

As we explore the potential of a more authentic and immediate relationship with life and the Divine, we will follow a modified Wisdom School rhythm with meditation, chant, Lectio Divina, movement and mindful work—with spacious breaks from computer screens! Engaging somatic and attention practices and the Wisdom roots of the Enneagram, we will track what jams the signals around our hearts. Together we will work physically with Enneagram and let this ancient symbol teach us.

For questions and to register please contact Craig: 802-777-9239 or csmith@diovermont.org.

Cost: $150, limited scholarships available. More about Rock Point: www.rockpointvt.org.

Ground Luminosity Silent Teaching and Meditation Retreat with Cynthia Bourgeault

Garrison Institute — Garrison, NY

This retreat has been postponed.
Stay tuned for a future date for this on the ground retreat.

This silent, Centering Prayer-based retreat will prepare practitioners to enter more deeply into the Christian season of Holy Week, that mysterious liturgical “thin place” where light and darkness, birth and death, heaven and earth, apocalyptic rumblings and tender new birth all draw very close together. The mystically attuned heart can approach this cosmic wellspring—or wormhole— and begin to read here “the signs of the times,” drawing from it both the strength and lucidity to live courageously in a world apparently adrift. 

The purpose of this retreat will be to attune our hearts, both individually and collectively. Grounded in the rhythm of the classic Centering Prayer immersion retreat, our time together will include three daily periods of formal meditation, sacred chanting and body prayer, and teaching by Cynthia Bourgeault drawing particularly on Thomas Merton, Rumi and the work of Ladislaus Boros elucidated in his magnificent book, Mystery of Death. These three anchor us in the cosmic heart from which all else flows.

Check in time is 3-6pm; departure after lunch.

Mary Magdalene and Attention of the Heart: Bonnevaux Speaker Series with Cynthia Bourgeault


Cynthia will explore the often sensationalized relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus as a pathway of conscious love, grounded in the contemplative quality of ”attention of the heart” – whether in celibate or partnered modes. If contemplation is—as John Crysostom said—, “knowledge impregnated by love,” Mary Magdalene is one its shining exemplars. Her transformation from wounded victim to “Apostle to the Apostles” pours hope into our wounded world. We can be cleansed and renewed in its healing waters. Cynthia will begin to show us how.

Time: 2-3:30pm EDT
