This monthly Spiritual Reading Group meets on the first Tuesday of each month (February to November) to explore a text from a mystic or spiritual thinker. Each month’s text is available in advance via email attachment or print form collected from the Carmelite Library. You are welcome to come regularly or any month that interests you. The convenor of the Group is Susan Frykberg. Susan is a composer, sound artist and poet. She also reads widely in Christian mysticism and theology.
