Introductory Wisdom School with Cynthia Bourgeault - Online -

CAC-Intro WS

This online course is hosted by the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC)

Course Overview

Cynthia Bourgeault is a long-time student of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths and is a 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.

NOTE: Completion of this e-course serves the prerequisite requirement for advanced courses or Wisdom Schools with Cynthia, including The Divine Exchange hosted online by CAC starting June 16, 2021.

Complete details and course registration available here: Introductory Wisdom School

Registration is now open until course is full or February 24, 2021, whichever comes first.

The Divine Exchange with Cynthia Bourgeault - Online -

CAC The Divine Exchange course

This online course is hosted by the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC)

Course Overview

Cynthia Bourgeault is a long-time student of the Christian contemplative and Wisdom paths and is a core faculty member of the CAC and Living School. Christian Wisdom teachings have existed since the earliest days of Christianity; Cynthia teaches from that ancient perspective in ways that suit today’s world.

Join Cynthia as she leads you on a path of discovery through The Divine Exchange, the spiritual foundation of the Christian Wisdom tradition. Cynthia teaches on the power of exchange: giving and receiving in a framework that embraces everything—information, goods, energy, sustenance, etc. She weaves together familiar gospel teachings and their less familiar counterparts in perennial wisdom to create a single tapestry of dynamic wholeness. 

That dynamism is a dance of abundance epitomized in the Trinity, Cynthia believes. She shows us how the principle of exchange is at the very heart of God as well as at the core of the gospel teaching. She then invites you to carry these teachings forward as part of your life, supported by practices designed to help you take this wisdom into your body.

Note: This course builds on Cynthia’s foundational material and works best as a follow-up to the online Introductory Wisdom School, taken either online or “on the ground.” Taking these courses sequentially is strongly recommended.

Complete details and course registration available here: The Divine Exchange

Registration for this course opens on March 1, 2021 and closes on June 9 or as soon as the course fills, whichever comes first.
