Spiritual Practices for Modern Day Mystics
We are living in a moment of great cultural and spiritual change. At times, it can feel like there are countless factors working against us to add stress to our lives. Yet, in our spiritual traditions we have a great wellspring of practices that can ground us in the Holy Spirit if we turn to them. In this presentation, Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining will invite us to explore some of these old and new practices that can bring wisdom and joy to our souls.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Every 500 years, there are huge shifts in society and spirituality
- When these shifts happen, mystics rise up to meet the spiritual needs of their times
- Their linage has left us with deep tools to keep our souls at peace in these shifting times
