In this week’s episode, Amos Smith shares from his decades of experience in contemplative mysticism. We talk about silence, solitude, and the inner life as well as insights from his latest book (releasing in June 2022): Journey of Holistic Mysticism: Experiencing the Integrated Spirituality of the Quakers.
Amos Smith (D.Min) earned a Bachelor's degree in Comparative Religion from The University of California at Santa Cruz in 1993, a Masters of Divinity from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley in 1998, and a Doctor of Ministry from Chicago Theological Seminary in 2008. He is a lifelong student of three streams: Progressive Christianity, Contemplative Christianity, and Eastern Mystic Christianity.
