Hello friends!

It has been said that mysticism is the antidote to fundamentalism. I believe it is also the foundation of healthy spirituality, characterized by love, hope, optimism, and mercy.

Mysticism — including the core spiritual practice of contemplation — inspires creativity and the quest for peace and social justice. It is a key to a meaningful and joyful life.

Through my blog, my books, and my poetry, I seek to share the wisdom of the great mystics with readers like you.

When you become a patron of my writing, you become part of a circle of contemplatives who join me in my hope to introduce as many people as possible to the wisdom of the mystics.

I hope you will join with me on the mission to share the message of the mystics with everyone who seeks a deeper spirituality in our time.


Your pledge — starting at just $1 a month — makes it possible for me to keep writing and to keep creating new content inspired by the mystics. Depending on the level of your support, you can receive never-before-published poetry, meditations, and other writing, giving you advance access to my work as it unfolds.

Please make your pledge today — and thank you!

Yours on the journey,

Carl

P.S. I understand that not everyone has time to read everything I write. But think about this: every blog post is a new opportunity for someone to discover the wisdom the Christian mystics and the beauty of contemplative spirituality for the first time. When you become a patron of my blog, you are helping others to find the beauty of mystical, contemplative Christianity.
