Qualities of a Mystic Through the Ages

Exemplifying Truth

Saint Francis in the Desert, Giovanni Bellini

Over the centuries mystics have exemplified certain qualities that have helped usher in new understandings to truth. These qualities led them to more deeply enter the heart of God. Since we are all striving mystics to some degree, exploring these qualities and looking for their reflection in our lives can help enrich and enliven the spiritual journey we are on.

This class includes one lesson on Qualities of a Mystic Through the Ages.

This course is open to anyone. If you wish to receive credit for this class, you'll be required to complete all aspects of the lesson including Study, Experience, Practice and Share.

Reverend Hal A. Lingerman discovered a book by Flower A. Newhouse, Disciplines of the Holy Quest, in Samuel Weiser's bookstore in New York City in 1973. He was guided to thank Flower in person, so he drove cross-country in response to the post office box address on the back of the book. Hal moved to California in 1978 to be closer to Questhaven and was ordained by Rev. Newhouse in 1982. His background includes thirty years of college teaching, pastoring and counseling, and seven years of Interfaith ministry to the hungry and homeless. Hal has authored a variety of books, including The Healing Energies of Music, Life Streams, Living Your Destiny, Your Journey in Christ, For the Love of God, Music to Awaken Heaven on Earth, Spiritual Awakenings I, II, The Nurturing Presence of Angels and The Living Christ: His Healing Influence Today.
