Richard of St. Victor

Mystics and Non-Dual Thinkers: Week 1 Richard of St. Victor Tuesday, July 14, 2015 My beloved contemplative teacher, St. Bonaventure (1221-1274) owes many of his insights to Richard of St. Victor (1123-1173) who shortly preceded him.

InterBeing

Native and Celtic Spirituality InterBeing Thursday, July 9, 2015 As I’ve mentioned before, the doctrine of Trinity is a powerful and totally non-dualistic image of reality.

For all their weaknesses, “religions of the book” have a… Continue Reading Finding the Sacred Everywhere
