As Lumunos' Business and Operations Director, he works hard to find sustainable avenues for bringing our services to a wider audience.

A wife, mother, grandmother, and retiree, Betsy has freedom to pursue her inner journey as a Spiritual Director and as a Kundalini Yoga Instructor.

Mystics for Everyday Living

(A Monthly Drop-In Online Event) 

Facilitated by Dan Quinlan and Betsy Perry

We are all mystics! The mystic heart is the deepest part of who or what we really are. We need only to realize and activate that essential part of our being.” 

—  Wayne Teasdale in The Mystic Heart

In 2022, "Mystics for Everyday Living" is being offered as a monthly drop-in online event. Each month we'll gather to talk about the life and teaching of one mystic (past or present). A mystic is an ordinary person who: 1) hears the call both to turn inward and to step up; 2) cultivates a contemplative life; and 3) offers the fruits in service to others. 

You can join anytime, come each and every month, or pick just the mystics that interest you most.

Join us in February as we explore the writing and teaching of  John Dunne (1929-2013), a Holy Cross priest and widely loved University of Notre Dame teacher. Deeply insightful, Dunne challenged orthodox thinking by asking startling questions about the relationship between people, nature and God.

The framework for each session will be to explore a few of the main ideas each mystic focused on, and how those ideas might help us in our spiritual journeys. Each session will include a short accessible reading to help participants become familiar with key ideas. Personal reflection time, conversation with others, and ideas for contemplative practices will be woven into the sessions, providing opportunities to explore our own internal and external journey towards wholeness. 

When: 2nd Wednesday of each month

Time: 7-9PM EST

Cost: $10 per session (We do not believe cost should be a barrier. For questions about scholarships, email becca@lumunos.org.)
