Dear Fellow Mystics,

Thank you for blessing us with your presence as we joined last Saturday to discuss “With Merton and Keating’s Roadmap, Where Do We Go from Here?” We are always thankful to gather with our fellow contemplatives around the world. Please take a moment to complete this short survey on our event. Your feedback helps our future planning and we value everything you share. Thank you for responding to it.

During our discussion our wisdom teachers Victor Kramer, Vernon Dixon, David Rensberger, and Ed Bacon unveiled their personal perspectives of how one or both of these two Thomases have guided their spiritual journey. Paul Reeves moved us with his contemplative songs and led a session of Centering Prayer.
Our dialogue among the panelists and participants exposed these common threads:

  • Contemplation is essential for the spiritual journey.
  • We are all one in God, not determined by race, religion, or political ideas.
  • A new countercultural movement is emerging where we are moving from the perspective of an individualistic divided self to inclusion.
  • Contemplation moves us from fear-based ideology to embrace love-based oneness.
  • It’s all about love.
  • It is only now.
