Explore life, love, and transformation. Participants will learn about the life and teachings of Christian mystics. The love of God and love of neighbor — as perceived by each mystic — will guide our time together. The classes will include still prayer, journaling, teaching and small group reflection, and using the process of mutual invitation to create a community of respect and growth. The discussions will draw from Enduring Grace: Living Portraits of Seven Women Mystics by Carol Lee Flinders and Christine Valters Paintner's Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics.
