Mondays 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
A study of the 13th Century mystic-warrior Meister Eckhart will introduce us to mysticism in the history of religion and Christianity. We will examine the thinking and mysticism of two important women mystics – Hildegard of Bingen and Julian of Norwich. But what is mysticism? What is the importance of mysticism in developing one’s spirituality and faith? Can we learn to understand the future of planet earth? Is there still room for mystery in Christianity?
