Eternal Heart: The Mystical Path to a Joyful Life
The heart is where the human soul and God meet.
This is what teachings from Scripture and the mystics reveal: the heart is the temple of God within us, and within the heart, we hold the key to live a truly divine life. But how do we embody the tremendous love available to us, deep in our hearts?
In Eternal Heart, Carl McColman, author of The Big Book of Christian Mysticism, invites us to create an optimistic, visionary, and imaginative path to personal happiness and fulfillment. Weaving together teachings from the biblical tradition, literature of the mystics, and wisdom of the world’s contemplative traditions, McColman engages us in profound, practical exercises for cultivating fuller, more abundant, and more satisfying lives.
The path of Christian Mysticism is a path of both contemplation and action. By unlocking the mysteries in our hearts, we discover a source of divine love deep within us: a power for spiritual growth, and for creating meaningful relationships and working together to change the world for the better.
Our group format is an informal gathering where we can visit before starting promptly on the hour with the discussion lasting about an hour. Visitors/house guests/young people are welcome to join us! Reading the book is encouraged, but not required. Drop ins are always welcome, so come join us when you can! Running late?? Need to leave early?? Not a problem with this group, just come and become more aware of the active presence of God in our world.
LOCATION: 7:00 PM group meets at the Boardman Nature Center Pavilion on Cass Road (see map)
