On Friday, April 20th at 7:30 pm, Matthew will be giving a public lecture at St. Laurence Anglican Church. Opening the Eye of the Heart: Jesus and Unitive Wisdom.  This public talk will explore the unitive and contemplative wisdom at the heart of the teachings of Jesus.  Together we’ll look at the ways Christianity has lost sight of its own contemplative heritage and how it is being recovered today.  Close attention will be given to the recovery of early Christian Wisdom literature, particularly the Gospels of Thomas and Mary Magdalene.

Tickets are available at the door at a cost of $20 cash.

Matthew Wright is an Episcopal priest, writer and retreat leader working to renew the Christian Wisdom tradition within a wider interspiritual framework.  He serves as priest-in-charge at St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock, NY and is a teacher for Northeast Wisdom and The Contemplative Society.
