BURLINTON, VT—The Rock Point Intentional Community (RPIC) hosted an Introductory Wisdom School on March 11-14 as an opportunity for individuals to experience the transforming power of contemplative prayer, chant, conscious work, sacred readings, and embodied prayer. More than 30 participants registered for the event—some hailing from nearby Burlington, others traveling from locations across the country—to hear from the Rev. Matthew Wright, retreat leader. Wright serves as priest-in-charge at St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock, NY and is a teacher for Northeast Wisdom, a non-profit organization rooted in the teaching lineage of Cynthia Bourgeault, an eminent voice in Christian contemplative and Wisdom teachings.

The Rev. Jackie Arbuckle said on behalf of RPIC, “The planning group will be meeting on April 2 to review evaluations and discuss future plans. So far, the response has been incredibly positive. If you missed this Wisdom School, you will not want to miss the next one!”
