“In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic or nothing at all.”-Karl Rahner

Join Fr. Anthony Ciorra, of the world’s leading living experts on Christian spirituality, to find the mystic inside you.

Find God in the midst of daily life through this powerful course. These inspiring lectures will give you a deeper understanding of the mystical experience. In particular, you will explore one form of mysticism: “everyday mysticism,” as it was called by 20th-century theologian Karl Rahner.

As Fr. Ciorra demonstrates, we are called not to be extraordinary mystics but extraordinary human beings who experience God in ordinary ways. We often think of mystics as superhuman persons who have paranormal experiences such as visions, ecstasy, and stigmata. When you look closely at such saints as Thérèse of Lisieux, however, you will see that to be a mystic is to occupy the core of human experience. As you explore the mystical writings of such inspiring figures, you will discover that there are both common threads and clear differences. In doing so

    Spring Survey: April 2017

    I like the presenter very much and I use the material as an at home retreat fitting my daily schedule. The course encourages going deeper in relating to God and is worth revisiting over time.

    The best Audio CD I’ve ever purchased

    I have been purchasing several audio CD’s from Now You Know Media for several years. This is the best of them all. The listener only need be interested in mysticism. This is one CD set I will keep and purchase others for people I think will be interested.
