The Way Of Union: The Metaphysics Of Early Christian And Sufi Wisdom With Matthew Wright: Matthew Wright

Thu. October 11th - Mon. October 15th @  Cowichan Lake Research Station Mesachie Lake BC (All Ages)
Opening: Wednesday 10th October 2018
Presented by: The Contemplative Society
Join The Contemplative Society and the Rev. Matthew Wright for a four-night Wisdom School that will explore the metaphysics undergirding the teachings of Jesus and the early Christian Wisdom tradition, as well as their relationship to a similar stream of teaching that flows through Islamic Sufism. These teachings present us with a coherent and luminous map of the human journey from timelessness into time, and deeper into integration and conscious union. We hope you will sign up and come with us as we seek to “enter the bridal chamber”, what Jesus calls the place of mystical union already present within our own hearts, accompanied on our journey by the Gospels of Thomas, Mary Magdalene, and Philip, as well as by the words of Sufi masters from Ibn al-Arabi to Jalaluddin Rumi.

New to Matthew? Rob King, a participant in our last Wisdom School on the Gospel of Thomas, had this to say about him: “If you have not had a chance to experience Matthew’s teaching, you will be in for a real treat…He has a unique ability to take what seems like difficult teachings and make them understandable and alive in a way that leads to personal transformation…[The Gospel of Thomas] became a living epistle!”
