“There is no need to look for God here or there. God is no farther away than the door of your own heart.”  Meister Eckhart

Mystics are people with vivid, direct experience of God. Often dismissed by the patriarchy as ethereal, they are instead grounded in community, Earth and practical service.  They live lives of “Radical Amazement” and can inspire and nurture our own spiritual journey.

We will delve into several Christian mystics from our ancient tradition, in dialogue with contemporary, Creation and interfaith mystics.
