Course Description:

Throughout history, mystics have been an integral part of many spiritual paths. This course will focus on mystics from three faith traditions: Islam, Judaism and Christianity. After exploring the concept of mysticism common principles, and the path of the mystic, we will draw on the lives of several mystics to illustrate their core teachings and the way they lived these common principles. We will examine how they have influenced each other, as well as how they are unique. Through this focus on the universal spiritual masters, we will also be asking ourselves the meaning of a mystical life.
