Short Course

About the course

Our Short Courses are an introduction to Christian mystics and masters especially those of the Carmelite tradition. These courses also aim to open up the rich treasury of the venerable Carmelite tradition with its 800-year history. From this tradition has emerged a host of great saints and writers who have enriched the Church and guided countless pilgrims along the road of prayer and in their quest for deeper intimacy with God. In these courses the key contributions of Carmelite saints and mystics – Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection, Thérèse of Lisieux, Elizabeth of the Trinity and Edith Stein – with regard to prayer and growth of the interior life are explored in a way that encourages practical appropriation of the disciplines they illuminate so compellingly in their writings: solitude, silence, community, contemplation, presence, prayer, listening, discernment, hospitality and integration.
