Embodying a God of Love: The Christian Mystics Show us the Way 

We are living in a time of rapid and unpredictable social and economic change. The balance of reflection and action and of solitude and community that we find in the lives of the Christian Mystics are presented in this course as a model for an engaged spiritual life.

In the writings and lives of the mystics, God always teaches through love and always stresses the self-worth of the human. We need that love badly, and we need to extend it to others.

The Christian mystics can show us the way.

Francis teaches these meditation practices to his many students around the world at retreats, events and meetings. Part of his vision for The School of Contemplative Living is to make these teachings available to those students who cannot easily travel to attend such events and to make them available at a fraction of the price of attending a retreat.

Course Overview 

Beginning with regular Tranquillity Meditation to establish a foundation of calm and focus, Francis leads us through the practices of mindfulness,  (or Resting as Awareness – and often the fruit of much self inquiry and the practice of Atma-Vichara, as taught by Ramana Marharshi) and on to the, where we can practice and explore the healing nature of awareness and presence.
