This week we join a discussion of Maurice Nicoll’s last book, the Mark. At the end of the discussion, Whitley leads a five minute sensing exercise.
Maurice Nicoll was a psychiatrist and also one of the most deeply informed explorers of the deeper levels of Christian thought in modern times. As a psychiatrist, he is credited with the discovery, in World War I, of what was then known as shell shock, and is now understood as post-traumatic stress disorder. He was also a member of the Gurdjieff movement.
In two weeks, the group will begin discussing Dr. Nicoll’s book The New Man. Like the Mark, it is a deep and powerful examination of the inner meaning of the parables.
