This event is offered both online (via Zoom) and in-person (at Trinity Memorial United Church, Conference Room B, Downtown Abbotsford)
$20.00 (total for the two sessions, in either format).
In the midst of our chaotic lives, we often miss the many times we are touched by mystery. Being an Everyday Mystic means being open to the wonder and mystery all around us. The goal is to help you develop your own means and ways to start the process of living in the world in a new more aware and awed manner. You will learn an intellectual framework to understand mysticism and create a desire for the mystical experience and thinking. We will have discussions about consciousness, perception, meaning, the nature of the divine, wholeness of being, mysticism, and more. Presented by The Reverend Bill Booth.
