Cascadia Living Wisdom School

What is a Wisdom School?

Unlike a traditional school, the primary objective of CASCADIA LIVING WISDOM SCHOOL is not – as surprising as this might sound – to teach wisdom. Instead, we seek to help you access the inner wisdom that comes from awakening of your heart and transformation of your consciousness.

Mentoring is much more central than teaching in this process. This is because we focus on living wisdom, not merely acquiring knowledge. And because the awakening and transformation we seek to facilitate involves a very significant inner journey, our wisdom school is a community of people who seek to support each other as we journey together toward accessing and living wisdom.

What is Wisdom?

Much more than knowledge or even understanding, wisdom is seeing life through the eyes of an awakened heart and transformed consciousness. In Buddhism this is called enlightenment. In Hinduism it is called liberation. In Christianity it is called acquiring Christ consciousness (or the mind of Christ). However, regardless of the language we use to describe it the important thing to note is that it involves something significantly more profound than acquiring information. It involves a quantum shift in our inner world that leads to a fundamentally new way of seeing and relating to everything in existence. This is the basis of wisdom and it is the basis of CASCADIA LIVING WISDOM SCHOOL.

Wisdom is grounded in a deep awareness of the sacredness and interconnectedness of everything in existence. It is living in alignment with the creative Spirit of Wisdom who inhabits all of creation and is our truest and deepest self. It is learning to participate in the cosmic, whole-making, transformational agenda of the Transcendent One.

How These Things Come Together

At CASCADIA LIVING WISDOM SCHOOL we help you learn to access and live wisdom. Through teaching and mentoring that is built around guided readings, online interaction, and regularly scheduled videoconferences, the program equips you to:

  • Develop the contours of an evolutionary spirituality that grows out of the awareness that everything has its origins in God and is being drawn toward wholeness in the Christ,
  • Acquire discernment of and cooperation with the outflow of Divine Love that is at the very heart of this flow, and
  • Cultivate whole-person wisdom that is lived through contemplative presence, discernment and active engagement with the world and its needs.
