“In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic or nothing at all.”

– Karl Rahner

Find God in the midst of daily life through this powerful course. Taught by leading spirituality expert Fr. Anthony Ciorra, these inspiring lectures will give you a deeper understanding of the mystical experience. In particular, you will explore one form of mysticism: “everyday mysticism,” as it was called by twentieth-century theologian Karl Rahner. As you will come to understand, we are called not to be extraordinary mystics but extraordinary human beings who experience God in ordinary ways.

We often think of mystics as superhuman persons who have paranormal experiences such as visions, ecstasy, and stigmata. When you look closely at such saints as Thérèse of Lisieux, however, you will see that to be a mystic is to occupy the core of human experience. As you explore the mystical writings of such inspiring figures, you will discover that there are both common threads and clear differences. In doing so, you will see how God is a mystery who can never be fully defined. You will look to the tradition for parameters and guideposts on the one hand, and as a path that leads to God on the other.

Fr. Ciorra’s presentations will lead you to a deeper appreciation of how you are already a mystic. Discover your own inner mysticism today in this inspiring, yet practical course.

The best Audio CD I've ever purchased
I have been purchasing several audio CD's from Now You Know Media for several years. This is the best of them all. The listener only need be interested in mysticism. This is one CD set I will keep and purchase others for people I think will be interested. Review by Kevin (Posted on 4/15/2018)
