Mystic Mondays in Lent

Illustration by Johannes Plenio

Discover what the Christian mystics have for you this Lenten season. Each Monday we will start with a practice designed to foster a deeper relationship with the divine. By engaging with you in creative, contemplative work we hope you will discover fresh ways of resting in God. Then, we’ll put our practice in conversation with the life and insights of a mystic as we leisurely drink our morning tea and coffee together.

Dates: March 2, 9, 23, 30; 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Cost: $15 each

Location: Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, McMillan 103 (Liturgy Lab), 100 East 27th Street, Austin, 78705

Recommended for: anyone looking for a new way to move through the Lenten season, anyone in need of a weekly refreshment in community
