ICN is very excited to bring this interview with mystic, author, and Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault!
This conversation between Paul Smith, Luke Healy and Cynthia centers on Jean Gebser's seminal work. This discussion weaves in and out many themes and threads of thought(s) and response, covering important territory.
(An important note: while it helps to be aware of Gebser and his work to listen to this podcast it is not absolutely necessary...no doubt you will fully appreciate the transmission of wisdom and the enjoyment of lively conversation!)
