The Luminous Gospels: Thomas, Mary Magdalene, and Philip
Join us for a weekend of teaching and practice, exploring the early Christian Wisdom Gospels of Thomas, Mary Magdalene, and Philip. These texts came to light in the mid-20th century and give us new insight into the development of early Christianity, the metaphysics undergirding Jesus' teaching, and the apostolic authority of Mary Magdalene. Taken together, they offer a map of the human journey from timelessness into time, and finally into conscious union—a journey that unfolds within what Jesus calls "the bridal chamber" of the heart.
$305. Private room and meals.
