When you hear the word “mysticism,” what comes to mind? Asceticism? A remote wilderness?

If you’re like many Catholics in the 21st-century, the pace of modern life—with its many distractions and forms of instant gratification—makes you feel cut off from ancient spiritual traditions like mysticism. Now is your chance to rectify that.

With renowned Ignatian Spirituality expert Professor Paul Coutinho, you will savor the universal mysticism of Saint Ignatius. A simple regimen designed to fit into your daily routine, this approach to mysticism shows you how to live moment to moment. As you embrace the fullness of your life, you will grow in your relationships and discover new depths of meaning and spiritual significance to practicing mysticism.

Mysticism belongs to multiple faith traditions—Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, and of course Christianity. Within the lineage of Christian mystics, dating as far back as the first century, Ignatian mysticism is special. As you will learn, Ignatian mysticism is built on an ever-expanding relationship with God. For St. Ignatius, God is not in the heavens. Instead, his essence is infused throughout all of creation. As a result, St. Ignatius championed the idea that mystical graces are available to anyone who knows how to receive them.

In this eye-opening 12-lecture course, you will learn not just to love God but also to receive God’s love. For many, the key to Ignatian mysticism is to find God in all things, but Prof. Coutinho puts his own spin on that idea when he emphasizes the importance of allowing God to find you in all things. Discover for yourself how mystical union with God will transform your faith.
