Join us for either day or both. The first day will focus on Hadewijch and Meister Eckhart. There was a burgeoning of mystical writings in the last middle ages, especially in the Rhineland region of Northern Europe. These texts were both highly experimental and theologically innovative, offering new ways of living in the presence of God. We’ll look at a selection of the writings of Hadewijch, a leader of a community of women known as the Beguines, and of the more famous Meister Eckhart, to learn something about their spiritual teaching and consider their value for today.
The second day will examine St John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila. Teresa of Avila and St John of the Cross have been regarded as the greatest mystical teachers of western Christianity. Here we take a fresh look at some of their key teachings, asking about their contribution for spirituality today and also noting their difference of character and approach.
