Spirituality in Everyday Life, Course lll 

                           
   

In this course, Fr. Keating continues to delve into the human condition, using St. Anthony of Egypt as a paradigm of a pilgrim on the spiritual journey and shows how this early desert saint’s struggles mirror ours with the false self.

 

Fr. Keating then takes us beyond the struggle to liberation from the false-self system and from our cultural conditioning. The course ends with instruction on adapting the spiritual journey into our daily lives: family life, professional life, active ministry and throughout the world.

Spiritual Journey Series

Based on Thomas Keating’s Spiritual Journey video series, this program guides participants to the transformative awakening and healing to be found along the contemplative path of consent to God’s presence and action within each of us. It incorporates psychological, as well as spiritual, aspects of dysfunction and healing as a means to make the mystical more accessible to 21st century pilgrims. “The language of psychology --- is better understood than the traditional language of spiritual theology.”

”This Spiritual Journey series consists of an Introductory Workshop followed by eight courses based on the videotape series by Fr. Thomas Keating, designed to support the daily practice of Centering Prayer. These courses are “an attempt to provide a roadmap, as it were, to the journey that begins when Centering Prayer is seriously undertaken.” “It seeks to point to the recognizable landmarks on the journey, as well as to its ultimate destination.

The richness of the material presented by Fr. Thomas does not age or lose its impact. Those of you who have had a Centering Prayer practice for several years will be enriched as you hear Fr. Thomas from a new place in your heart. A bonus for students repeating any class is a significant reduction in the price of the class. Your cost is half-price. Come renew your commitment and your practice!

Contemplative Spiritual Direction

                      
   

Being on a spiritual journey implies that you have a relationship with God, the Holy, the Creator, the Ultimate Mystery, Higher Power.
 
Like any relationship, at times we need someone to listen to our experiences and help us see and hear where God is touching our lives. Being heard is both a healing and a deepening experience.
