DESERT WISDOM ON THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

 

The practical and contemplative wisdom of the Fathers and Mothers of the Desert is part of the spiritual heritage of all Christians.  In this workshop we will focus on their understanding of spiritual progress, particularly the practices and forms of prayer they considered to be the foundation of Christian contemplation.  Workshop participants are encouraged to read the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, translated by Bendicta Ward and published either by Cistercian Press or Penguin Books.   

 

Fr. Luke Dysinger has been a monk of Valyermo since 1976. He is a priest and a physician who writes and teaches in the fields of mystical theology and biomedical ethics. He received a D.Phil. in patristics at Oxford University and is professor of church history and moral theology at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, CA.
