Summer Book Club: ‘The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See’ by Richard Rohr
July 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Rohr a Franciscan monk, takes his hat off to mystics and describes them as having moved “from mere belief systems or belonging systems to actual inner experience.” These inner explorers are willing to surrender to the gift of grace that has opened their hearts “to the naked now of true prayer and full presence.” They realize that although God is unspeakable, the divine is at the same time as close and as accessible as our breath. ”
Over the course of seven weekly Tuesday evenings (beginning July 18 at 7 p.m.) we’ll journey through this thoughtful, provocative and engaging book. Our meeting locations will vary from Danes Street Beach, to Beverly Commons, Long Hill, to Mount Mitchman, to Atomic Cafe…we’ll playfully explore and experiment with new and deeper ways of seeing and being. By the end of our journey we may find that we’ve been changed, blessed and living more naturally in the present, in ‘the now’. Hosted by Kent Harrop, limited to 15.
