The Living School at the Center for Action and Contemplation
Cynthia is one of the core faculty of the Living School for Action and Contemplation, a two-year program of the Center for Action and Contemplation. The school offers a unique opportunity for students to work with acclaimed Christian teachers to prepare themselves more fully for active engagement with a hurting world through a rigorous study of the Christian mystical tradition and daily contemplative practice. The curriculum includes both online and on-the-ground components. Other faculty include Richard Rohr, James Finley, Barbara Holmes and Brian McLaren.
Northeast Wisdom (Wisdom Waypoints)
Northeast Wisdom (soon to become Wisdom Waypoints) is Cynthia’s Wisdom “home base,” a lively and growing international network of individuals, small communities, and emerging Wisdom teachers. Under the guidance of a six-member “Wisdom Council,” it serves up varied fare of online courses, retreats, and practice group, as well as on-the-ground seminars and retreats when circumstances once again permit. It is the sponsoring organization for Cynthia’s highly popular annual Stonington Wisdom Ingathering and for most of her regional New England and mid-Atlantic retreat work. It also maintains a lively website with lots of opportunities for interaction both with Cynthia’s teaching and with fellow Wisdom students.
The Wisdom Way of Knowing
This remarkable Wisdom resource center, the Wisdom Way of Knowing, is the creation of artistic and entrepreneurial genius Robbin Brent, who early on saw the need for such a resource and built it as a labor of love for both present and future generations of Wisdom seekers. It contains perhaps the most exhaustive and authoritatively catalogued archive of Cynthia’s collected teaching, as well as a unique collection of video teachings and full-fledged online courses, filmed over the past several years at on-the-ground Wisdom Schools in Maine, Arizona, and Western North Carolina
The Contemplative Society
The British Columbia-based Contemplative Society is Cynthia’s pilot Wisdom community and the Wisdom hub for the Pacific Northwest. Its unique claim to fame is an extraordinary series of audio teachings dating back to 1999 and literally marking the emergence and evolution of this particular lineage. While most of these audios are Cynthia Bourgeault teaching, an increasing number of emerging Wisdom voices are also included in these offerings, including Matthew Wright and Mirabai Starr.
Cynthia’s network is made up of thoughtful organizations that support her work and the contemplative community. Click the above logos to explore.
