Resources featuring Cynthia Bourgeault
The following include online courses and resources featuring Cynthia Bourgeault
Introductory Wisdom School – Online
If you haven’t yet taken an Introductory Wisdom School, here is your window of opportunity: the Online Introductory Wisdom School offered by the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC).
This twelve-week course is a carefully crafted remake of the original event filmed on location at a Wisdom School in North Carolina in 2015. It’s both comprehensive and interactive and will cover all the material you would have covered in an on-the-ground school with a powerful flavor and ambience of the original still remaining.
An Introductory Wisdom School is typically required as a prerequisite for participation in additional Wisdom Study with Cynthia Bourgeault. This provides both the basic concepts and the basic practices you need to get started on the right foot. Offered periodically by CAC, you can find dates, details, and registration here.
As a gift from Robbin Brent at Wisdom Way of Knowing you can view the Course Transcript and Companion Guide and videos of the Sunday evening and Monday morning teachings here.
The Divine Exchange – Online
The Divine Exchange, hosted online by the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) follows on from the Introductory Wisdom School. It’s a deep dive into the notion of exchange—i.e., giving and receiving—both as it shows itself as the linchpin of Jesus’s teaching and as it emerges as the cornerstone of Christian Wisdom metaphysics in the notion of “exchange between the realms.” It’s the tie-rod connecting Cynthia books The Wisdom Jesus with Eye of the Heart, and lays out a powerful pathway of healing and practical action in our world today.
EXCHANGE really does hold the key to how so many pieces of our broken world fit back together again, and the more of us that can be thinking in these terms, the more we can begin to articulate—and start walking—a visionary path of action, grounded in the Christ heart. ~ Cynthia Bourgeault
Brought to you by Shambhala Publications, join Cynthia for an eight-week course challenging what you probably think you know about Jesus, and helping you uncover a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. Using her book The Wisdom Jesus as a guide, you will join Cynthia in exploring the teachings of Jesus through the lens of nonduality and kenosis (“letting go”). Throughout the course, Cynthia will guide you in experiencing Christian wisdom practices, including Centering Prayer, lectio divina, sacred chanting and psalmody, and the Welcoming Practice.
Offering insights into centering prayer and the contemplative life, an interfaith understanding and appreciation of the wisdom tradition, and thoughtful and inspiring approaches to spiritual transformation. Other resources are also available on Cynthia’s Living Spiritual Teachers Project page.
