The need to de-mystify the mystical

Thanks to Lee for reminding us that in the One Garden journey we have been trying over the last few years to de-mystify the mystical.

Lee sent the following quotation;

“The most unfortunate thing about the concept of mysticism is that the word itself has become mystified and relegated to a “misty” and distant realm that implies it is only available to a very few. For me, the word simply means experiential knowledge of spiritual things, as opposed to book knowledge, secondhand knowledge, seminary or church knowledge.” – Father Richard Rohr
