The Silent Cry

For those who missed our recent conference or who don’t get the QUG newsletter let me recommend a wonderful book on mysticism: The Silent Cry – Mysticism and Resistance by Dorothee Soelle (2001, translated from the German, 1997). To quote from its back cover: ‘Dorothee Soelle is an activist who is also a mystic. She refuses to separate prayer and politics and stresses the redemptive possibilities in every human situation’.

Presentations from 2017 Conference ‘Exploring the mystery of mysticism

The 2017 QUG Conference ‘Exploring the mystery of mysticism’ generated considerable interest. The presentations gave a rich structure to the days and led to many questions and lively discussion. Some questions that could not be raised in the time available will be posted on this site hopefully stimulating a continuing debate on-line.

Recordings of the presentations and question sessions from the conference are now available on the QUG.org.uk website Conferences/Conference 2017.
