Resurrection By Love:

Easter Meditations with the Aramaic Jesus

At the Bishop’s Ranch Retreat Center, Healdsburg, CA 95448

With Neil Douglas-Klotz


God speaks to the Soul:

When your Easter comes,

I shall be all around you,

I shall be through and through you

And I shall steal your body

And give you to your Love.

–Mechtild of Magdeburg, 13thcentury German mystic

The words of Jesus in Aramaic suggest meditations and spiritual practices that lead us to the door of Love, pointed to in the vision of Mechtild of Magdeburg. Using contemplative prayer, gentle movement, chant and awareness of the divine breath (ruha) that flows through and around us, our hearts and spirits are revivified. We then begin to feel our bodies as part of the bread of life and our blood as the essence of forgiveness and releasing, ready to be shared with all of creation.

Throughout the weekend, we will explore the spirituality of Yeshua, the Middle Eastern prophet, through a mixture of teaching, silent meditation, walking meditation, chant and sacred movement, particularly the Dances of Universal Peace. Neil will draw teachings from all of his books, from Prayers of the Cosmos through Original Meditation. He will also share from his unpublished work-in-progress on the ancient nomadic spirituality in the Jesus traditions as well as Judaism and Islam. This ancient strain reveals the earliest remembrances of our human ancestors, “messages in a bottle” they left behind to help us understand ourselves and our world better.
