Introductory Wisdom School

Online —

Cynthia Bourgeault is a long-time student of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths and emeritus core faculty member of the CAC and Living School. Christian Wisdom teachings have been around since the earliest days of Christianity; Cynthia teaches from that ancient perspective in ways that suit today’s world. Arising from an in-person Wisdom School that Cynthia led for 200 students, this online course integrates her teachings and contemplative practice to offer an embodied experience.

Wisdom isn’t something you get from a guru or a reward for performing certain actions. Wisdom is about inner work and transformation. Wisdom isn’t knowing more; it’s knowing more deeply, with more of yourself. Wisdom is caught more than taught. This 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.

Course Objectives

  • Cultivate a Wisdom rhythm in your daily life through reflection and engagement with contemplative practices and teachings.
  • Expand your awareness of the Christian Wisdom path and its relevance to our realities today.
  • Develop contemplative practice(s) to engage and embody these teachings.
  • Connect and learn with others on the journey toward living in a Wisdom way.


NOTE: Registration closes one week before the course opens or as soon as the course fills, whichever comes first.
