The Wisdom Way of Knowing
Reclaiming an Ancient Tradition to Awaken the Heart
By Cynthia Bourgeault
This Good Reads page details several ways to obtain the book: Where to find The Wisdom Way of Knowing
I’m excited to announce our first book in the Divine State of Mind Book Club. This book club is not intended to be a list of recommended books. It’s an ongoing, interactive discussion group, an opportunity to gather with others to read, study and contemplate various written material all under the subject matter of Divine State of Mind.
A few reviews from the book’s back cover…
“Drawing on resources as diverse as Sufism, Benedictine Monasticism, the Gurdjieff Work, and the string theory of modern physics, Cynthia Bourgeault has crafted her own unique vision of the Wisdom way in this very accessible book, nicely balanced between concept and practice.”–Gerald May, senior fellow, Shalem Institute, and author Addiction and Grace and Will and Spirit
“This lively and beautiful book will be helpful to many who find themselves setting out on the interior journey.”-Bruno Barnhart, a Camaldolese monk and author, Second Simplicity, The Inner Shape of Christianity
“This book is a precious gem, a short and brilliant synthesis of the world’s great wisdom traditions.-Joan Borysenko, author, Inner Peace of Busy People
Clear, concise, inspiring and poetic.”
We’ll gather on zoom once a week and also use some wonderful new community software to connect with one another, ask questions and discuss our thoughts.
