The Contemplative Experience of Jesus
"What is the essence of the message that the Christian contemplative tradition seeks to impart? It is the experience Jesus had of the Father (Ultimate Reality) as Abba." –
Father Thomas Keating
In this second installment of a 3-part series, we will continue to reflect on the Gospel as sharing in Jesus’ experience of God and what that means for contemplative living today. Aware of the oppressive realities of the Roman Empire and the egoic use of religion, we will explore the spiritual awakening stories known as 'the parables'.
The morning will include three 30 minute periods of centering prayer and an interactive discussion.
