Discover the Christian Wisdom path and its relevance for us today. Awaken to your yearning for a different kind of presence and to develop the skills, knowledge, and actions for self-transformation.
A 14-week online course exploring the Christian Wisdom way of knowing and its relevance to our realities today. Cynthia Bourgeault blends teaching with contemplative practices to help students engage in their conscious work on an embodied level—aligning the mind, body, and heart.
Introductory Wisdom School will introduce students to the Christian Wisdom path and is designed to increase your capacity to know. Knowing in this tradition does not mean an increase in intellectual understanding but knowing more deeply, more intuitively, and with more of yourself.
Wisdom isn’t something you get from a guru or as a reward for performing certain actions. Wisdom is about inner work and transformation and is caught more than it is taught. This embodied form of knowing includes your intellect as well as an active awareness of your intuitive knowing. Students will learn exercises and practices to increase conscious awareness in their body and engage with this form of knowing. Cynthia Bourgeault offers an invitation to awaken to your yearning for a different kind of presence and to develop the skills, knowledge, and actions for our own transformation. This is the Wisdom way of knowing and growing.
Introductory Wisdom School is a 14-week online course. Students should expect to invest 4–6 hours of work each week on course material, reading assignments, online discussions with other students, and time for personal reflection.
Students will have access to course content for the duration of the course. Course content will be available one week after the course ends, or until Midnight (MT) on the Tuesday following the course end date.
No prior experience with Cynthia’s teaching is required; however, some students may find it beneficial to have some familiarity with Cynthia’s books or talks. This course serves as the prerequisite to The Divine Exchange.

Each week students will explore a new topic of study through an introduction (including an inner task and chant for the week), teaching material, a contemplative practice, and student discussions. Students can progress through each week at their own pace.
This 14-week online course is designed so you can bring the teachings, contemplative practices, and conscious work into your own routine and deepen its impact on your life.
