PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED
The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind – A new Perspective on Christ and His Message by Cynthia Bourgeault (2008)
Once a month starting January 2021 ~ through May 2021
In Wisdom Jesus we will be attempting a new take on Jesus, a new look at him as a master in an ancient spiritual tradition which I’ll call wisdom. The angle of approach I will be using through this book is to see Jesus first and foremost as a wisdom teacher, a person who clearly emerges out of and works within an ancient tradition called “wisdom,” known sometimes as sophia perennis, which is in fact at the headwaters of all the great religious traditions of the world today. It’s concerned with the transformation of the whole human being. The key tool that we need to find and live the path today…this tool is our own power of inner recognition.” (p. 3, 4)
In our 5-month Tuesday Wisdom book Circle we will intentionally cultivate a Wisdom way of knowing through:
- Grounding in the Practices of a Wisdom Circle
- Supportive group discussions facilitated by seasoned Wisdom practitioners centering around readings in Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind – A new Perspective on Christ and His Message by Cynthia Bourgeault: 3 – 4 chapters a month
- Mindful attentional practices/Inner Tasks
- 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.

About Wisdom Jesus:
“There are few spiritual teachers who give us genuinely fresh insight, but even fewer who give us the tools so we can come to those insights for ourselves. Cynthia Bourgeault does both [in Wisdom Jesus], and does them very well”. ~ Richard Rohr
