Launching of the latest book by Cynthia Bourgeault, The Meaning of Mary Magdalene is receiving rave reviews, and Cynthia, herself, has become quite an international figure in recent years. The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault is a spiritual teacher, writer, and seminar leader aside from her life calling as Episcopal priest. She also serves as the principal Teacher and Advisor to the Contemplative Society, an ecumenical, not-for-profit association that encourages a deepening of contemplative prayer based in the Christian tradition. Bourgeault has studied and taught in a number of Benedictine monasteries in the United States and Canada and is passionately committed to the recovery and discovery of Christian contemplative principles; having worked closely with Fr. Thomas Keating as a teacher of Centering Prayer, Fr. Bruno Barnhart, and other Christian contemplative masters, as well as in Sufism and the Christian inner traditions. Bourgeault is the author of countless articles and many spiritual books. The event will take place at St Francis by the Sea in Blue Hill on Tuesday, September 14th from 10:00 AM - Noon. Books will be available at a discount and Cynthia will sign all books as refreshments are being served. St. Francis is partnering in this event with The Northeast Guild for Spiritual Formation. There is a $25 fee. Please call Eric Erickson at 244-5168 firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.
