Answering the Contemplative Call by Carl McColman
Saturday, November 23 at 1:00 PM
The mystical path is not some sort of static experience for the select few, says Carl McColman, rather, it is a living tradition, a rich and many-layered dimension of spirituality that is in large measure a quest to find the mysteries at the heart of the universe, paradoxically nestled within the heart of your own soul. In Answering the Contemplative Call, McColman offers a practice that will help readers come to a place meaning and purpose in their lives.
