The Rev. Matthew Wright, M.Div is an Episcopal priest, writer, and retreat leader working to renew the Christian Wisdom tradition within a wider inter-spiritual framework. He is a student of Cynthia Bourgeault and a teacher for Northeast Wisdom.

In addition to the sold-out retreat he is leading the following weekend, Matthew is holding a public event at the University of Victoria Interfaith Chapel. We will examine a global shift in spiritual understanding that is resetting contemporary religious experience in a “non-dual” or unitive framework, and will specifically explore Christianity as a path of contemplative awakening within this context. We will look at the ways Christianity has lost sight of its own unitive ground, and explore the heart-centred nature of the Christian awakening.
