The Wisdom tradition seems to begin in Hebrew Scripture with the Babylonian exile. It flourished in Jesus’s time and appears in all 4 Gospels, though fuller expressions, like the Gospel of Thomas, were eventually deemed heretical. The heart of Wisdom is mysticism and Fox, like Jesus and Paul, could be seen as both a prophet and a mystic. We have access to that same Wisdom today as many of us open ourselves to direct experience of Spirit, God, the mind of Christ, or whatever language we use.
Gail believes that only as we realize our own potential as integrated human beings can we fulfill our purpose as compassionate beings helping to heal the world. In this workshop, she will help us both look at the tradition and experience ways to “soften the fortress round our hearts.” Expect some lecture, time for discussion, and exercises to help us go deeper in this workshop.
