THIS GATHERING WILL BE HELD ONLINE.
Please use the Zoom Link, which is available to those who RSVP.

Our sister group, “SEEKERS Anonymous – DC Metro”, will be meeting ONLINE on Thursday, April 23 for a [REPEAT] of Week 14 of the “Peeling the Cosmic Onion: A Journey of Spiritual Transformation” series! The topic will be “Mystic Traditions”.

As we transition from the field of Philosophy back into more practical aspects of Spirituality, we again find ourselves confronted by a myriad of choices. What does “Religion” even mean to us, once we have thoroughly dissected our previous worldview or Theology, and explored so many mind-expanding new ideas? How do we engage in a spiritual tradition that may often seem antiquated, misguided, or even, in more extreme cases, harmful?

At our next Meetup, we will be traversing the less-travelled Mystic pathways that wind their way quietly through every mainstream religious tradition. In Judaism, the teachings of Kabbalah date back at least to the Medieval Zohar, and possibly much further, if its adherents are to be believed. The Sufis of Islam, such as the revered poet, Rumi, have brought light into our world in even the darkest of times. The Gnostic tradition, which grew out of the same Jesus story as the canonical Gospels but was suppressed by the Church and relegated to the Egyptian desert for fifteen centuries. And finally, the monastic orders of Christianity, founded by the Desert Fathers & Mothers of the early Church, which have led to some of the most profound and enriching insights of the religion.

If you were unable to attend the Meetup on the 13th, please consider joining us online, starting at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 23, as we discuss the rich history of Mysticism in various religious traditions, and what it means to embrace Mystery in these uncertain times. Please use the Zoom link, which will be made available when you RSVP.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you (virtually) on the 23rd!
