Excerpt from Chapter 3 of Be Still & Listen (Book Release Date: June 12th) 05-18-2018

People have often asked or challenged me, “Why study mystics from so many centuries ago? What can they possibly have to say to us today?” It is true that early Christian mystics knew nothing about the Renaissance, the industrial and scientific revolutions, or the technological age. Yet, they knew most intimately what we postmoderns most desperately need: primordial freedom born of stillness.

The early mystics experienced awareness and divine union that eludes most people, including most Christians, today. They had holistic vision. Their educational and cultural development was occasionally (not always—have you met St. Augustine or St. Hildegard of Bingen?!) lacking by today’s standards. Yet, their state of consciousness was timeless. There are three themes of the great mystics that I want to explore in this chapter, explaining how and why I am personally drawn to each of them:  

1) Nature Mysticism

2) Still Small Voice

3) Stillness and Silence

The Way of the Wisdom Jesus: Going Beyond the Mind to the Heart of His Teaching – 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.  Based upon her book the Wisdom Jesus.

Prayer is a core Christian practice, but for many, this means “saying prayers” or asking God for various favors. In this course, we will review a variety of methods of prayer that have been used for centuries in Christianity. Whether you’re a beginner who is just learning how to pray, or a more mature Christian who has been at it awhile, this course will offer specific guidance, encouragement and support for practicing several time-tested methods of prayer.  Enjoy a review of this course by Rich.

Simply Good News is a short course based on Prof. N.T. Wright’s latest book, Simply Good News.

You will instantly get into the heart of the idea of ‘good news’ as it was understood by the 1st Century writers of the New Testament. You will be brought into their world in order to make more sense of what ‘good news’ means in our world.
