JOHN OF THE CROSS: BEYOND THE DARK NIGHTS
Presented by Dr. Rickey Cotton
John of the Cross is one of the greatest, most influential mystical teachers of the Christian tradition, and he is honored as one of the 36 Doctors or pre-eminent teachers of Catholic Church history. Most famous for his Dark Night of the Soul and often thought of as austere and complex, John was actually a romantic of the Spirit who passionately longed for us to pass beyond the dark nights into full-scale transformative union with God.
In our day together we will emphasize John’s vision of joyful consummation in God beyond the dark nights while also seeking to understand his life and his foundational teachings. In addition to the presentation of biographical and spiritual information, we will have periods of contemplative prayer as well as meditation on key selections from John’s powerful teaching. And of course there will be opportunity for questions, dialogue, and mutual stimulation as we engage this heroic spiritual teacher.
