We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time -T S Elliot
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.
Francis of Assisi, Black Elk, Etty Hillesum, Beatrice Bruteau, Thomas Berry
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.
