SUMMER PROGRAM

                        
   

Francis Bennett joined us last fall with a presentation of MAPS OF THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY where she spoke about two classical maps of the spiritual journey, The Ascent of Mount Carmel by the renowned Christian mystic and spiritual master, John of the Cross, and the Ten Ox-herding pictures of the Zen Buddhist Tradition.


This summer program is an opportunity to delve deeper into her book I Am That I Am.  The book begins with the following quotation … does this attract you?


“The whole truth can be summed up in one verse from the Jewish/Christian scriptures, ‘I am that I am.’  And the entire method for realizing this truth is found in another of those scriptures, 'Be still and know that I am God.' (Quote from Sri Ramana Maharshi)


I Am That I Am began life as a journal, written at the suggestion of Francis’ spiritual director.  It was intended to help Francis clarify and explore the shift in perception that had come upon her, not only for her own sake but for those who might seek her spiritual guidance in the future.  This deceptively simple book brings a unique freshness and humanity to the meeting of Christianity with Eastern investigation of the nature of the self.  Please join us in exploring her wonderful writing.
