Do you want to walk a path of wisdom and compassion?
Are you interested in inner transformation and outer transformation of our world?
If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of radical wisdom and compassion, whose aim is nothing less than the transformation of human consciousness. And his aim is to breakthrough our habitual thinking and to effect a complete conversion of our minds and hearts. Cynthia Bourgeault looks to the Gospels, to contemplative experience, and to recently discovered ancient Christian documents (such as the Nag Hammadi scriptures and the Gospel of Thomas) to reveal a fresh new understanding of Jesus and his teaching.
Join us for a study & practice group exploring Cynthia Bourgeault’s Wisdom Jesus over five meetings, spaced over September and October, starting 6 September 2016. The subsequent meetings will be Tuesday 13 September (7.15pm-9.45pm), Saturday 1 October (3pm-5.30pm), Thursday 13 October (7.15pm-10pm) and Tuesday 25 October (7.15pm-9.45pm). BEFORE signing up please ensure you can make a minimum of four of these five meetings
If Tuesdays are inconvenient, there is another group running in parallel on Wednesdays and Thursdays if those days of the week are more convenient for you. See the Meet Up Calendar for Wednesday 7 September for more details of the other group and the dates when they will meet.
We will meet in a home in central Hove (address to be confirmed on registration). We’ll start the evening with a simple shared meal to start each evening. After the meal there will be time for meditation and shared reflections on the book. The group size is limited to maximum twelve people.
