Teresa of Avila and the Stages of Prayer
Thursday, March 21, 2019
7:00PM – 9:00PM
Teresa of Avila is one of the greatest mystical teachers of prayer in the Christian tradition. Cristobal will offer insights from Teresa on the different stages of prayer as we move towards union with God. He will draw primarily from her book Interior Castle and from other contemplative writers to explore her metaphors of climbing a spiritual ladder gradually through the different mansions or dwelling places within the inner castle. Cristobal has followed the footsteps of Teresa and John of the Cross, having been born and raised in Spain himself. This presentation is open to all interested persons. We're sure you'll find it to be both inspiring and motivational. Offering $20 or whatever you can afford
