Day of Enrichment
Cathedral of St. Philip
Save the Date for The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault
Saturday, March 17, 2018
We are excited to announce that the Cathedral is partnering with Contemplative Outreach Atlanta and Ignatius House to bring The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault to Atlanta next spring!
In this one-day conference, Cynthia will explore the themes of her book, "The Heart of Centering Prayer". Centering Prayer is the path to a wonderful and radical new way of seeing the world. It is not, as is sometimes thought, simply an act of devotional piety, nor is it simply a Christianized form of other meditation methods. It is, in fact, a pioneering development within the Christian contemplative tradition in which the mind effectively switches to a new operating system that makes possible the perception of nonduality. She will also take us on a journey through one of the sources of the practice, the Christian contemplative classic The Cloud of Unknowing, revealing it to be among the earliest Christian explorations of the phenomenology of consciousness.
This day long conference will include lectures, discussion and question & answer, and of course, time for Centering Prayer itself. Registration will begin January 2018.
The cost is $50/person and includes lunch.
The location of the conference is the Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30305. Please visit our website (stphilipscathedral.org) for hotel and other information.
