Mark Your Calendars…

For my Atlanta area friends: I’ll be out and about quite a bit over the next few months, promoting my book (but, more importantly, talking about Christian mysticism). Several churches and bookstores have invited me to come speak and sign books. A few additional events are still in the works. While some events (such as the Evening at Emory Class or the Spirituality Conference at First Christian Church) have a fee attached to them, others are free. Here are four such events you might want to put on your calendars…

  • This coming Thursday, August 5, 2010; 7 PM — “The Secret Teachings of the Christian Mystics” Talk and book signing; Phoenix and Dragon Bookstore, 5531 Roswell Road, Atlanta, GA 30342.
  • September 12, 2010; 11 AM — “Introduction to Christian Mysticism” at the Vedanta Center of Atlanta, 2331 Brockett Road, Tucker, GA 30084.
  • September 26, 2010; 9:45 AM — “Introduction to Christian Mysticism” at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, 48 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, SW Atlanta, GA 30303.
  • November 14, 2010; 9:30 AM — “Introduction to Christian Mysticism” at Shallowford Presbyterian Church, 2375 Shallowford Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30345 (guest instructor for Bob Saye’s “The Questioners” Sunday School Class)

These, and other, events — including appearances outside of Atlanta — will always be posted on my Schedule page. So keep your eye on that page to see when I’ll be in your neighborhood.

Also, if your church, bookstore, monastery, retreat center, or other entity would like to invite me to come speak, teach, conduct a retreat, lead contemplative prayer, or otherwise stir the mystical pot, please get in touch with me. Thank you!

Happy St. Hildegard's Day!
