Class Description: Mysticism has a long history in our Christian heritage. The mystical experiences of many saints are well documented. However, mystical experience is very personal and extremely intimate. Each mystic has his or her own story, lived in a particular time and place. Each mystic has very special encounters with God which we are privileged to share.
John Duns Scotus, Thich Nhat Hanh, Abraham Heschel, Simeon, The New Theologian
Befriending the Mystics is designed to give participants a chance to peek in on the mystical experience of a variety of people throughout history. Each session will include prayer, a presentation on a particular mystic and prayer using Lectio Divina with the mystic’s writings.
