Book Signing in Woodstock, New York

June 2 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

After my retreat at Holy Cross Monastery finishes up on Sunday, June 2, I’ll be driving up the road to Woodstock for my first-ever event in that legendary town! Co-sponsored by St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church at the Golden Notebook Bookstore, we’re billing this event as:
A Book Signing and Conversation on Christian Mysticism, Celtic Paganism, Zen Buddhism, Gender/Sexuality, and Other Gates into Nondual/Nonbinary Reality
Featuring Carl McColman, author of The New Big Book of Christian Mysticism and Spirit of the Celtic Gods and Goddesses
In the mid-twentieth century, a leading Catholic theologian said “The Christian of the future will be a mystic or will not exist at all.” Today, many churches are closing their doors, but others have retreated into Christian nationalism and authoritarianism. Is there a place for a truly life-affirming spirituality, in a world where religion seems to be on life-support, society is bitterly divided, and our economic system continues to separate the world into haves and have-nots? Can meditation save the world (or is it just an indulgence for privileged people)? These are the kinds of questions that author Carl McColman loves to explore. Carl is the author of books on Christian mysticism, Celtic spirituality, and Paganism, and is both a Christian and a practicing Buddhist. Our time together will include some short readings from Carl’s books, a short talk about interspirituality and authenticity as keys to a joyful and meaningful life, and then plenty of time for conversation/Q&A.
I believe there’s no charge for the event, although a donation basket will be available. Books will be available for purchase (and autographing). Hope to see you there!
