Events with Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault

30 May 2020 - 5 Jun 2020
Fourth Annual Maine Wisdom Ingathering: “Introducing the Imaginal Realm.” -


For more information, please go to the NorthEast Wisdom page.


Our theme this year is 2020: HONORING THE YEAR OF PERFECT VISION. The morning teachings will feature a “sneak peek” into my forthcoming (September 2020) book, Eye of the Heart: A Spiritual Journey into the Imaginal World, where we explore some powerful new perspectives for working skillfully in a world apparently hopelessly divided and gridlocked.

This year the logistics for the event will be managed by our dedicated Wisdom duo, Mary Ellen Jernigan and Eileen Clark, two very caring and responsive presences, who have set up a special e-mailbox just for the occasion. They will be happy to work with you on all aspects of logistics, accommodations, and other details. If you would like to talk to Eileen or Mary Ellen by phone, just send a note to with your phone number and the best time for one of them to give you a call.

10 Dec 2020 - 15 Dec 2020
Ground Luminosity Retreat - Garrison Institue, Garrison New York

This silent, Centering Prayer-based retreat will prepare practitioners enter more deeply into the Christian season of Advent, that mysterious liturgical “thin place” where light and darkness, birth and death, heaven and earth, apocalyptic rumblings and tender new birth all draw very close together. The mystically attuned heart can approach this cosmic wellspring—or wormhole— and begin to read here “the signs of the times,” drawing from it both the strength and lucidity to live courageously in a world apparently adrift.

The purpose of this retreat will be to attune our hearts, both individually and collectively. Grounded in the rhythm of the classic Centering Prayer immersion retreat, our time together will include three daily periods of formal meditation, sacred chanting and body prayer, and teaching by Cynthia Bourgeault drawing particularly on Thomas Merton and Rumi, whose respective deaths (on December 10 and December 17) bookend this week and. anchor us in the cosmic heart from which all else flows.

The Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault is an internationally known teacher, writer, and retreat leader with roots in the Christian contemplative tradition and wings in the mystical unity of all sentient beings. A student of Fr. Thomas Keating for more than thirty years, she is the founding director of The Contemplative Society in British Columbia, and of the Aspen Wisdom School in Colorado, and has served since 2013 as one of the core faculty for the Albuquerque-based Center for Action and Contemplation, together with Richard Rohr and James Finley. She is the author of nine books, including her most recent: Eye of the Heart: A Spiritual Journey into the Imaginal Realm published in September 2020.
