Essentials of Christian Mysticism
Welcome to an introductory course on both practice and perspectives of these timeless teachings from the Christian Mystical and Contemplative traditions! Whether you are a long-time practitioner looking to solidify your understanding and framework for practice or a beginner interested in immersing yourself in this teaching, this course can serve as a rich resource.
This essential course on Christian Mysticism combines a look at practices and background, teaching and historical development of Christian Mysticism.
Part I of the course examines in-depth traditional practices of the Christian mystics, including:
- The Examen
- Centering Prayer
- Lectio Divina
- The Jesus Prayer
- Christian Meditation
Part II of the course takes a close look at the tradition of Christian mysticism through both ancient and modern lenses using the practice of The Jesus Prayer as a jumping off point to illuminate the contemplative path in both theory and practice, including:
- The threefold path of Christian Mysticism
- The difference between waking up and growing up
- Integral teaching
- Perspectives from Contemporary Psychology
Our aim as practitioners and teachers is to offer these ancient teachings in relevant and accessible ways to a modern audience, and to integrate these teachings and practices more deeply into our everyday lives.
This combined course (normally $147) is available for $97 until October 20th.
If you have already purchased our Contemplative Practices or Contemplative Perspectives courses, they are integrated into one combined course here as Part I and Part II. If you would like to take the other, we encourage you to purchase those separately.
HOW TO WRITE A DEVOTIONAL
Plus How To Get Them Published
If you read devotionals, you already know how they can be a true blessing. A devotional can uplift you when you’re feeling discouraged, sad or lonely. It can help you acknowledge and repent from sins that cause personal rifts and create distance in your relationship with God. It can allow you to feel a keen sense of fellowship with another Christian, even if the two of you never actually meet.
And, if you are feeling called to write devotionals, know that you have a unique opportunity to bless others and make a genuine difference in their lives. This course takes you step by step through the process, and then guides you towards publishing, if that is your goal.
