Description

If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. In this online course, Episcopal priest, teacher, and retreat and conference leader Cynthia Bourgeault serves as a masterful guide to Jesus’s vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teaching for yourself. Using her book The Wisdom Jesus as a guide, you will join Cynthia in exploring the teachings of Jesus through the lens of non-duality and kenosis (“letting go”). Throughout the course, Cynthia will guide you in experiencing Christian wisdom practices, including centering prayer, lectio divina, sacred chanting and psalmody, and the welcoming prayer. The course concludes with a celebration of recognition energy: that wellspring inspired by the instantaneous, mutual recognition of hearts.

In this course you will:


  • Contemplate non-dualism as it relates to the teachings of Jesus

  • Explore what kenosis means and connect it to the classic non-dual practice of “non-attachment”

  • Examine “indwelling presence,” or “living remembrance,” with regard to Jesus’s own teachings in the Gospels of John and Thomas, the Eucharist, and the Resurrection

  • Experience Christian wisdom practices, including centering prayer, lectio divina, sacred chanting and psalmody, and the welcoming prayer

  • Explore recognition energy


The course includes:

  • Eight 15- to 25-minute downloadable video lessons taught by Cynthia Bourgeault

  • Practices and reflections to help you integrate the teachings into your practice and daily life

  • Guided reading assignments with downloadable PDFs from The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind—A New Perspective on Christ and His Message by Cynthia Bourgeault, PhD

  • Unlimited access to all course materials
