Wisdom is not knowing more, but knowing with more of you; carving and digging your being deeper and deeper so that it can receive more knowing. – Cynthia Bourgeault

This three-month Embodied Wisdom Training in the Practices of Wisdom offers opportunities for participants to cultivate and deepen Wisdom Practices in their own lives, observing and contemplating their impact. Participants will be able to engage these Wisdom Practices with others in a group setting.

In each gathering, we will focus on Wisdom teachings and embodiment practices for each of our different Centres of Knowing: Emotional Centre, Movement Centre and Intellectual Centre. We will also view Wisdom teaching video clips by Cynthia Bourgeault.

Participants involved in this Wisdom School will:

–        Learn and engage Wisdom practices for daily life (Centering Prayer,

Sacred Gesture, Chanting, Inner Tasks)

–        Learn mindfulness, conscious attention, and embodied presence

–        Learn and engage Lectio Divina with the Gospel of Thomas Sayings

–        Unpack these ‘deep and wide’ Wisdom pearls together, and also receive

a monthly inner task.

Dates: Saturday mornings on 22nd April, 20th May, 17th June.

Time: 9.00am – 11.30am NZ timezone

Course Fee: $150 NZD.  To register: Send an email to info@contemplative.org.nz
