St. John of the Cross: Session 6

This is the sixth session that focuses on the mystic, St. John of the Cross. With this episode, Jim turns back to Thomas Merton’s book, The Inner Experience, to summarize his own understanding of The Dark Night and begins to move us towards St. John of the Cross’s work on The Spiritual Canticle and The Living Flame of Love. Through these works, he will introduce us to the mystical awakening that emerges out of the dark night, and the oneness or union that comes with infused contemplation.
