"...things do not lose spirit simply because they inhabit form… the created world is infinitely precious and valuable in its own right." ~ Cynthia Bourgeault, The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three
"...as the heart comes alive as an organ of spiritual perception, we are able to perceive the invisible Kingdom of Love that surrounds us - and live it into being." ~ Cynthia Bourgeault
"Split a piece of wood, and there I am. Pick up a stone and you will find me there." ~ Gospel of Thomas, Logion 77
"Only after the terror of one's own diminishment and annihilation, after the last scraps of clinging to life at any cost have been left behind forever, is it possible to truly live in hope." ~ Cynthia Bourgeault, Mystical Hope p. 69
Matthew Wright is coming to Vancouver Island! Seeing from the heart, or knowing more deeply, is critical to the transformation Cynthia Bourgeault and other respected contemplatives are calling us to in these uncertain times, and Matthew will help us do just that. He will be teaching on the Gospel of Thomas as a gateway for “Opening To the Eye of the Heart”, supplementing this resource for Lectio Divina with meditation, embodiment practices, chanting, and instruction. Join us for the five-day retreat at the stunningly set Cowichan Lake Research Station from March 17 to 22, or at our public event in Victoria on Thursday, March 23.
