Roots of Christian Mysticism – The Desert Tradition

Saturday 9th November 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Roots of Christian Mysticism


Saturday mornings

9.00 – 10.30 am

An invitation to join us in a relaxed, friendly and enquiring small group as we explore this long tradition of contemplative spirituality which traces its origins back to Jesus himself and the early church.  Mysticism has sometimes in the past been marginalised in the western church but still has a powerful relevance for today in its message of simplicity and acceptance.

Each session will be self-contained and end with a short period of meditation which you are welcome to join whether or not you have tried meditation before.

The group will meet at St Thomas’ Church on Saturday mornings at   9 am and the following dates have been agreed so far:

14 September – Biblical roots of Mysticism

12 October – Early Church Fathers

9 November – The Desert Tradition

7 December – Celtic Spirituality
