Original Date: Thursday, September 27th, 2018
Mysticism is an approach to spirituality that has ancient roots. It has been a nourishing presence for many centuries. Today, however, mysticism faces unique challenges from modernity, challenges it has not had to previously face. This talk will focus on those challenges, how they can be overcome, and what mysticism has to offer us today.
Jim Wilson is a former Buddhist Monk, a former Prison Chaplain, one of the founders of Many Rivers, and a poet. He is currently a member of the local Quaker Meeting here in Sebastopol.
