Contemplative Christianity: Exploring the heart of Christian mysticism - WIE.org - 0 views

  •  
    At the heart of Christianity's monastic, contemplative, and mystical traditions lives the spirit of a fourth-century band of Christian renunciates known today as the Desert Fathers. These spiritual zealots lived outside the boundaries of society, pursuing spiritual purification through the renunciation of all worldly distraction. The legacy of their devotion lives on today in the inspiring lives of the contemporary practitioners who are dedicated to the pursuit of the timeless spirit and true meaning of the sacred Word.

    * Discover the heart of Christianity's ancient contemplative soul-and its relevance in today's fast-changing and chaotic world.
    * Explore the revolutionary-and evolutionary-spiritual philosophy of French Jesuit priest and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, with cosmologist Brian Swimme.
    * Directly experience the spiritual depth and inspired compassion of Archbishop Desmond Tutu in an impromptu sermon videotaped in Bali, Indonesia.
    * Connect with some of the true spiritual pillars of Christianity today, in articles and interviews featuring Father William McNamara, Father Thomas Keating, Brother David Steindl-Rast, Brother Wayne Teasdale, and others.
