New Series Wisdom Jesus based on the book, “The Wisdom Jesus, Transforming Heart and Mind – a New Perspective on Christ and His Message” by Cynthia Bourgeault. 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. We will also discover ancient contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teaching for yourself.
Through a transformative lesson in vocabulary, giving new meaning to perceptions like “head,” “heart” and “repentance,” she offers a fresh reading of the Beatitudes, challenges us to explore the more complicated messages imbedded in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke and emphasizes a notion of “self-emptying love” that allows for a shift in consciousness from ego-based analysis to acceptance of divine abundance, which in turn sheds new light on examinations of the Passion, crucifixion and ensuing events. Guided chapter primers on centered meditation and chanting further prepare readers to test the open waters of welcoming the “flow of… deeper sustaining wisdom.”
