Show Notes

Catholic theologian Karl Rahner said that the Christian of the future will be a mystic, or nothing at all. Could mysticism save Christianity? Could contemplative spirituality give the church back its life? Could it be a lifeline for those who've left the church but retain their faith? These are the questions I pursued with art educator, writer, and contemplative Arthur Aghajanian. His spiritual path of non-dualistic thinking and Eastern meditation eventually led him back to the deep, nourishing Oneness that flowed beneath the church's divisive beliefs and tired rituals, where the wisdom teachings of Jesus resound. It gives us pause (in good contemplative form), and it gives us hope.
