From the Wisdom perspective, we can hear the teachings of Jesus in a whole new way. In fact, we come to see everything in a whole new way—including ourselves. This is not the result of believing something different. It is nothing less than the transformation to a whole new way of seeing and a whole new way of knowing. But this transformation is based on experience and not belief. Spiritual practice—like the ancient contemplative disciplines of meditation, chanting, and lectio divina—are important. Additionally, attention practices are essential in this transformation.
But the challenge of this vision and understanding of life is that you cannot see it until you can see it. From our usual way of seeing and from our ordinary consciousness this simply makes no sense at all. It requires subtler faculties of apprehension.
Wisdom’s work is to provide opportunities for this kind of deepening and to assist Wisdom seekers in this ongoing process.
The presenters for the Wisdom schools include the Rev. William Redfield, Sister Lois Barton CSJ, and Deborah Welsh, Ed.D.
