Opening to the Eye of the Heart: Christianity and Unitive Wisdom – An Evening with Matthew Wright
23 Mar 2017
Time 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location St. George’s Anglican Church
Sponsored by The Contemplative Society, join the Rev. Matthew Wright for an evening in the beautiful Sanctuary at St. George’s. We will explore the unitive and contemplative wisdom at the heart of the teachings of Jesus, and how a heart-centred practice derived from this tradition can help us all feel more aligned with our True Selves, guarding against common ailments in social justice circles like compassion burnout and ecological despair. Together we will look at the ways Christianity has lost sight of its own contemplative heritage and how it is being recovered today and being integrated with action. Close attention will be given to the recovery of early Christian Wisdom literature, particularly the Gospels of Thomas and Mary Magdalene. Everyone is welcome!
Cost: By donation.
