Mystic Heart Wisdom School

The Mystic Heart Wisdom School is a year-long spiritual formation program that builds on the Core Curriculum of Seton Cove and provides an in-depth study of the Wisdom Tradition. This tradition, also known as the Perennial Philosophy, is the core synthesis of religious thought from the world’s great religions.

True to the Seton Cove mission of providing hospitality and holistic programming for people of all faiths to nourish their spiritual growth and journey toward wholeness, this program will foster spiritual inquiry within community. Through sacred study and spiritual practice we will walk in the steps of the great saints and teachers who paved the way for the modern day mystic.


The Mystic Heart Wisdom School meets four times a year in a retreat format and is centered on the following themes:

  1. The Perennial Tradition and the Mystic Heart
  2. Source and Presence: The Divine I Am
  3. The Trinity: Entering the General Dance
  4. Carrying on the Work of Love

The curriculum will include book studies, the Enneagram, contemplative practice, body prayer/qi gong, mindfulness, and individual and group discernment processes. Learn more about our program facilitators by clicking here.
