A Wisdom School

With Pip Nicholls and Bev Silvester-Clark

"Wisdom is not about knowing more, but knowing 
with more of you”
Cynthia Bourgeault


There is developing, here in NZ, a community of serious practice based on Wisdom School principles. We are pleased to offer this weekend to support this growing community and it will also be appropriate for first time attenders.

This is the fourth Wisdom School Pip and Bev have offered. It follows on from our very first Wisdom School in February 2016 lead by Cynthia Bourgeault. With Cynthia’s encouragement, Pip and Bev subsequently developed a ‘home grown’ model based on the principles of three centred knowing, (head, heart and body) as described in Cynthia’s book The Wisdom Way of Knowing and solidly grounded in practice; the how of knowing with more of us. Francis Bennet spoke so well of practice when he said  “The idea behind spiritual practice is to help you discover the truth about who you are, who God is, and that in fact these two are not separate realities.”

The weekend will include some input and the practices of meditation, chant, lectio divina, qigong, contemplative dialogue and conscious work.  There will be periods of silence plus opportunities for discussion and shared reflection.

If you wish to join us it is desirable, but not essential, that you have an established meditation practice. 

Cost: Includes the following....
Accommodation: Residential $80.00 or Non Residential $30.00
Catering: a contribution of food (we are self-catering)
Facilitation: suggested contribution for facilitation $60 (ie $30 each for Bev and Pip) – we are happy to receive more or less as circumstances allow.  

Times:  Begins 7pm Friday 13th October, ends 3pm Sunday 15th October
