  • ** NEW ** Visio Divina in your Inbox
    Over the last several years images and meditations have been literally pouring into our world and OOOW Priest Alison Hine and Abbot Lynn Bauman have been working through the Luminous Gospels, illuminating the three ancient Christian texts. The wondrous sacred poetry from the Psalms and from across the Abrahamic traditions have also been illuminated. Some of this has already been shared in teaching seminars around the country and at the annual Gathering. Now, for those interested, a subscription of contemplative readings, meditations and images that blend what we are calling “Visio Divina” (a mandala like gaze at iconic images) with Lectio Divina, the heart’s listening to and contemplation of sacred texts, will be available electronically in October.
