Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton
This interfaith group of 8 to 10 people meets for an hour to study a thoughtfully designed curriculum for spiritual development. “Bridges” invites spiritual transformation for the sake of a more just and peaceful world.
While “Bridges” uses Merton’s writings as a starting point, it seeks above all else to mine the life experience and spiritual depths of those who use it. The series is based on key principals from Merton’s thought:
Our everyday life is our spiritual life;
It is every person’s primary vocation to be fully human, aware of who we are and how we relate to others;
Our spiritual formation cannot take place in isolation;
Spiritual formation is grounded in the experience of relationships and community;
Personal transformation is the foundation for societal and cultural transformation.
