Classes and Training Programs on the Path of Christian Mysticism
Through the ages humanity has come to a recovery of their forgotten oneness with God. Their attainment of recovery brings them to oneness with the Eternal Spirit. This search for and recovery of oneness with God has been called mysticism.
Christian Mystic, Flower A. Newhouse
As a living school, Questhaven Academy is designed to help sincere seekers find their way with God. Our Path of Christian Mysticism leads students beyond just believing in God to a knowing of God through direct experience. By deepening their contact with their Real self that dwells in God, students begin to discover the Divine flowing through them and in all life. Rigorous study, practice and contemplation inspires seekers to raise their consciousness, to live in greater alignment with Inner Guidance and to open themselves to experience God in ever-increasing ways.
In the Academy, not the intellect but the soul will be revered. Different than intellectual learning, the spiritual process involves learning to subordinate reason and logic to intuition and illumination. This shift in emphasis runs counter to the current university concept and commands wholly new approaches and methods. Students are asked to explore, experience, and embody the truth they are learning.
To support us in this quest come the clear, practical, mystical, in-depth esoteric teachings of clairvoyant and Christian Mystic, the Reverend Flower A. Newhouse, founder of Questhaven Retreat and the Christward Ministry.
While we believe there are many passageways to God, our path in the Questhaven Academy is the Path of the Lord Christ that He revealed first to the twelve and then to the seventy. Its hidden existence has been shown gradually to increasing numbers of seekers. It is the way of:
- Spiritual Love
- The Inner Governing the Outer
- Initiation of Character
- Illumination of Consciousness
In the end it leads to being self-emptied and God-filled and to one consuming desire: to serve the Will of God.
