Mystic Series - “That Divine Eccentric” Caryll Houselander
Time & Location
About the Event
Born in 1901 in Bath, England, Caryll Houselander began having mystical experiences at the age of ten. In her early 20s three of these experiences led her to believe strongly that Christ is to be found in all people.
With no formal theological education, she became a prolific spiritual author of prose and poetry, a spiritual guide, and a religious artist. She was also known for her zany wit, salty language, and love interest in a Russian spy, leading biographer Maisie Ward to dub her “that divine eccentric.”
We will look at the overall messages of her mystic vision and how they continue to provide inspiration today, nearly 70 years after her death from breast cancer at age 53.
