Together, we strengthen our Holy Backbone

Help us reach our year end fundraising goal of $7,500!

The Trisagion is an ancient prayer used primarily in the Eastern churches. I never paid much attention to it until Cynthia Bourgeault’s retreat last fall, when I heard the second line, Hagios Ischyros, translated as Holy Backbone.

Holy Backbone has become central to my thinking and practice these days: the solidity and flexibility of my own spiritual backbone, and the concept of The Contemplative Society as a sturdy scaffolding of support for contemplatives and mystics scattered across western North America and around the world.

While Giving Tuesday is opportunity to ask you directly for your support, I also want thank you for all the support you have offered to TCS, which makes it possible for us to be of service. And so I hope that you will join me in committing once again to support The Contemplative Society and help us reach our year-end goal of $7,500.
