Entering the Gateway
A day with Cynthia Bourgeault

This day is now fully booked

The Contemplative Network is delighted to announce that Cynthia Bourgeault is returning to Wellington for a day’s retreat introducing some of the ideas in her latest book:  The Heart of Centering Prayer - Nondual Christianity in Theory and Practice.  During the day Cynthia will review Thomas Keating’s teaching on the purification of the narrative self, introduce the Witnessing self and have a closer look at the Welcoming prayer as gateway to it.  The day will include time for teaching, meditation practice and an opportunity to discuss and respond to your questions.

Episcopal priest, writer, and internationally known retreat leader and Wisdom teacher, Cynthia divides her time between solitude in New England, travelling globally to teach and spread the recovery of the Christian contemplative path and sailing when time allows.  She is the author of eight books which include: The Wisdom Way of Knowing, Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, The Wisdom Jesus and the Heart of Centering Prayer.  She is also available on YouTube - but come and meet her for yourself and you’ll see she is a great translator of perennial wisdom for today.
