Spirituality & Practice is delighted that Cynthia Bourgeault, our most popular e-course presenter, will be doing a special “Benefit Talk and Q&A Conversation” about hope in our times. In her 2001 book Mystical Hope, she suggested a new way of understanding hope in the spiritual life. She explained that hope is not tied to a future desired outcome, some fix-it impulse. It has to do with presence, the experience of being met by something from within. It is an abiding sense of being that bears fruit in sensations of strength, joy, and satisfaction.
What does it mean to live a contemplative life?

Why am I reaching again for the brushes?
When I paint your portrait, God,
But I can choose to feel you.
At my senses’ horizon
you appear hesitantly,
like scattered islands …
All creation holds its breath, listening within me,
because, to hear you, I keep silent.
