Consists of a weekly email sent each Thursday morning which includes art, Scripture, teachings from the Work of Inner Christianity integrated with contemplative Christianity, homework exercises, links to a glossary, and archived emails and classes. Participants in The Journey School are expected to read, reflect and engage the contents, suggested practices and homework of the weekly email.
Exploring the ideas and practices of the Work of Inner Christianity integrated with wisdom from the contemplative Christian tradition, a Zoom gathering of sharing and discovery in a community of high intention and purpose.
The primary place for the processing of our Work on the spiritual journey and the nurturing of spiritual community in a small group setting. Discussion is shaped by the weekly curriculum content and how participants are engaging with it in their daily lives. Journey Groups involve a one-year commitment, beginning in February and concluding in December.
One-on-one relationships working ideally daily with another, supporting one another, setting daily aims, and holding one another accountable. To qualify for a Work Partner relationship, one must have been receiving the weekly emails, and attending the Thursday evening class for at least six months. If less than six months, you can still sign up for a Work Partner. You will be on a wait list and contacted in July.
Exercises and sacred dances having as their aim equilibrium and unity of being, balancing the three centers, working in all three lines. Participation involves a one-year commitment, beginning in February and concluding in December. There are prerequisites for participating in the Movements.
Consent to journey deeper into Christ, what theologians call Theosis, what Jesus called “abiding with him,” and what St. Paul called “union with Christ” or “putting on the mind of Christ.” Participation as an Oblate is a declaration of intentional relationship to the Divine Mystery that is God and to all creation. To become an Oblate, a vow is taken, renewable each January. The vow is born of a personal hunger and commitment for transformation into Christ and a wish to live a committed life in service of this aim. In making their vow, Oblates commit themselves to God and to living the Oblate Rule of Life so to actively participate in the spiritual journey while engaging the transformative process as “monks in the world.” Oblates participate in The Journey School programs by receiving the weekly email and participating in a Journey Group, (with the option of having a Work Partner and participating in the Gurdjieff Movements). The vow is to God alone, yet lived out through and with the Church community.
