Awakening the Heart: An Interfaith Approach to the Wisdom of Jesus
We offer seminars on this theme several times each year.
Next seminar: October 5-7, 2018
The Parables of the Treasure, the Merchant and the Net
Fragments of Jesus’ teaching are scattered throughout the gospels.
Frequently they are buried under a thicket of Christian traditions
developed by others in later generations.
Many sayings from Jesus suggest a study of our own being rather
than his. They point to the possibility of a further development in
us psychologically that does not happen automatically. There are
indications that help is available and that in our habitual states we are
not effective receivers of that help.
In these seminars we place sayings associated with Jesus in dialogue
with other spiritual traditions, with psychology, poetry and other
sources of wisdom. We explore questions with journaling, drawing
and movement, and without pressure to agree with anyone else.
This weekend we will work with three sayings about the “Kingdom
of Heaven”: that it is like a treasure hidden in a field, like a merchant
in search of fine pearls, and like a net thrown into the sea. What light
can we find for our inner situation in these three views of a reality that
Jesus described as “at hand”?
