I’m Andrew Harvey and I’m sitting here in Bonnevaux after giving a retreat on radical regeneration. I am thrilled to contemplate coming back in September to be with my great friends, Laurence Freeman and Cynthia Bourgeault and together to present to you here, in this beautiful holy place, new wine in new skins, a reinvention of the Christian mystical tradition. To be as powerful, all embracing, transformative and regenerative as Cynthia, Laurence and I know it to be.
I know it must be to meet the challenge of these extremely dangerous times. What I’m especially thrilled by is that we’re very different people. We each have very strong visions of Christ consciousness and we each present them with the fullness of our many years of practice and many years of work. But we each honor, love, respect and learn from each other. So we will form a kind of radiant trinity and offer here our vision of how the Christian mystical tradition can be radically reinvented to reveal another depth of transformative power.
So please come and dance with us because we’ll be having an amazing time and we would love to share it with you.
