This workshop is a guided discussion instead of instruction. Mysticism has the most astonishing lesson to offer for those who can pause to see. Yet, it is something that can’t be taught. It can only be uncovered.
First evening discussion……. What is mysticism, where is it found, how does it occur. Choose a mystic or mystic tradition to read and understand for the next meeting.
Second Evening discussion…… Present the mystics studied. Describe their experiences. Look for a common thread? List historic techniques for achieving mystic consciousness. Discuss perception. Discuss the impact of description and categorization. Read the short manual Practical Mysticism for the next evening.
Third evening…… Re-discuss a definition of mysticism. Again describe the common threads in mystic consciousness. List various stimuli for mystic consciousness. Describe newer techniques for achieving mystic consciousness. Watch an amazing TED talk together. Now …………. Do you see it?
