Mystical Spirituality

Mystical Spirituality-John Shavers (Facilitator) Adrienne Splinter (Co-Facilitator)

Background: Our group started in the fall of 2018 at First UU Church. We meet weekly to discuss works dealing with mystical spirituality. The format of the meetings begins with a short meditation followed by a discussion on a reading.

For the new Church Year 2022, we’ll continue to meet weekly on Sundays at 12:30 pm, on Zoom. On January 30 th we’ll be starting Desert Wisdom: A Nomads Guide to Life’s Big Questions from the Heart of the Native Middle East by Neil Douglas-Klotz

Whether you are new to this type of study, or not, we would love for you to join us. We anticipate that this book will take approximately ten weeks.
