Northeast benign histiocytoma wisdom

It was an out-of-the-box idea, but one that I thought was worth trying—a virtual holy week retreat. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this benign histiocytoma would interest so many—and from all over the world. Providing three recordings each day as well as a zoom benign histiocytoma gathering that broke participants up into small groups, this online program provided choices for participants based on their benign histiocytoma needs and their time availability. This successful first run will be followed by future programs—even wisdom schools—online. Also, this holy week program will return next year and will benign histiocytoma be expanded into a full lenten retreat. Stay tuned! Rather than try to explain the intricacies of the week, let me instead share some of the results. Bill and sarah said, our journey through holy week with you was breathtaking, even from the imaginal. The day before the week began, I was in the car, listening to bill bryson’s account of climbing mt. Washington, including his description of emerging at the summit, exhausted, to find all the auto-road tourists. The very next day I’m back on mt. Washington with you! There is so much to comment on. I was going to urge that you create more of benign histiocytoma these continue reading… No question: A pilgrimage to india with rev. Matthew wright and br. Aidan owen, OHC

Thousands of questions are silenced as if dissolved. There are neither doctrines nor heresies. The possibilities are endless, [living] creatively in me. ~ paul klee, 1916 chennai, the city we used to call madras, splays itself along the southeastern edge of india, fully exposed to the surging foam of the bay of benign histiocytoma bengal. We arrived on the festival of pongal, lights whirling, colours strewn, bonfires glowing in the night forests like perforations to the benign histiocytoma earth’s inner core. India. Massive, effervescing, filled with a life energy that cannot be easily quieted. The first day some of us picked our way across benign histiocytoma hot sand to the shore where cows were not altogether benign histiocytoma happy about their baths in the sucking waves, ablutions to give festal thanks for the growing season’s first fruits. Each of us had our reasons to join rev. Matthew wright and br. Aidan owen, OHC, on this pilgrimage to the land of st. Thomas, ramana maharshi, and fr. Bede griffiths. There in tamil nadu, south india, we would sit before thomas’s tomb and climb into the cave where the apostle benign histiocytoma lived and taught; we would rest at saccidananda ashram, devoted to inter-religious expressions of advaita hinduism and christianity; continue reading… Not a mistake. Not a disaster. Not over: bruno barnhart on “movement III: the western turn” in the future of wisdom

Not a mistake. Not a disaster. Not over. This summarizes my reflection on bruno’s analysis of the western turn in the re-emergence of christian wisdom in our time. I begin by noting that for those of us who benign histiocytoma are not scholars or academics, or who are old enough to have forgotten most of benign histiocytoma what we learned in our western civilization courses, the term “modern” calls up notions not much longer ago than the last benign histiocytoma hundred years or so: the age of automobiles and airplanes; of instant and constant communication through radio and television, email and internet; of quarks and quanta and other things we don’t really understand. That observation is perhaps a commentary on what is often benign histiocytoma perceived as the audaciously arrogant character of the west. But bruno situates the modern western turn as beginning nearly benign histiocytoma a thousand years ago, and he sees within that millennium the radical unfolding of benign histiocytoma the christ-event in the arc of history of western civilization. More particularly, it is precisely in, rather than in spite of, the predominantly horizontal-axis trajectory of that history, that he finds the deepening descent of the incarnation—of god coming into this world in ever-wider immanence and universality. He calls out continue reading… Encountering the heart of silence: A conversation with cynthia bourgeault in two parts

When people gather in silence, a deeper kind of collective, synergistic, numinous knowing unfolds. And that’s the only knowing that’s worth a damn, particularly when you’re working with the infinite. ~ cynthia bourgeault on february 25, 2019 cynthia was interviewed for a podcast on the encountering benign histiocytoma silence website, hosted by carl mccolman with cassidy hall and kevin johnson. These recording are available in two parts, as episodes 58 and 59: encountering the heart of silence: A conversation with cynthia bourgeault (parts one and two). You will find all the links to these podcasts at benign histiocytoma the end of this post. All thanks to cynthia and to the folks at encountering benign histiocytoma silence for this delightful interview! Encountering silence describes the interview in this way: “cynthia shares how her love for silence originated with her benign histiocytoma early education in quaker schools, where she recognized silence as a “liturgical expression and mode of divine communion.” there she discovered silence not merely as the absence of benign histiocytoma noise, but as a sacred container of presence. For her, after a long meandering journey from christian science to episcopal benign histiocytoma ordination, she became (in her words) a “trappist junkie” as she began to study centering prayer with fr. Thomas continue reading… Bruno barnhart’s movement II: the eastern turn

Each month, a northeast wisdom voice is offering a reflection on a benign histiocytoma chapter from bruno barnhart’s the future of wisdom. This month, it’s my turn with chapter 3, “movement II: the eastern turn.” I admittedly found chapters 1 and 2 a bit of benign histiocytoma a slog (somewhat overly academic and technical in language), but not without enough incandescent gems scattered along the way benign histiocytoma to keep me turning the pages. For me, chapter 3, however, hit the ground running! Here, bruno brings the experience of nondual consciousness front and center, and (fascinatingly) ties it to baptismal identity (of all things!). When I first read this book over a decade ago, this linking didn’t make much sense to me—it felt strange and forced, and left me scratching my head. Reading it now, the same idea lit up for me beautifully. Little by little… They say. I’ll summarize and comment on some of bruno’s main points from this chapter as we go. Bruno begins by looking at the 20th century encounter of benign histiocytoma christianity with what he calls “the asian spiritual traditions”—hinduism, buddhism, and taoism. He points out that this encounter has significantly altered the benign histiocytoma way christians think of “meditation”—less as “a process of reflection continue reading…
