Exploring a Nondual Christianity of Cosmic Proportions

On September 30, 2022, The Contemplative Society hosted an in-person teaching event with Cynthia Bourgeault at St George’s Anglican Church in Victoria. This event was recorded and now The Contemplative Society is delighted to offer a recording of this day of teaching, practice, and fellowship as an E-course.


Video recordings of three event sessions (total of 3.5 hours).


Cynthia BourgeaultCynthia Bourgeault is an internationally-renowned retreat leader, accomplished author, medieval scholar, and avid sailor. She is the inspirational and respected teacher to a world-wide network of spiritual practitioners and seekers, offering her unique blend of thoughtful insight, and practical guidance. The foundations of her theology dynamically weave together a cosmology based in the fourteen-billion-year-old universe story, illuminated through Imaginal seeing from the eye of the heart, and grounded in the contemplative arts as espoused by the world’s great Wisdom traditions. 

“Christianity has simply become trapped in a cosmology and theological superstructure by now far too small to contain the vast life force that still runs through its veins.”  ~ Cynthia Bourgeault 

Cynthia offers an overview of her principal theological tenants and emergent thinking, drawing from her most recent book The Corner of Fourth and Nondual,  a title inspired by Thomas Merton’s famous moment of revelation ‘at the Corner of Fourth and Walnut.’  

For people familiar with Cynthia’s work, this course offers an engaging retrospective to the foundational insights that were developed when Cynthia lived on the Salish Sea 25 years ago. People new to Cynthia’s teaching will find an inspiring and spiritually relevant introduction to the Christian wisdom path, with practical suggestions on how to integrate these spiritual practices into their own lives.
