A Heart and Mind Community - Sequence of Six Guides

Use these Six Guides to form a Heart and Mind Community and make The Four-Gospel Journey.

The Guides are a text for conveners to be used with Heart and Mind, Second Edition (2017) or Revised Second Edition (2019).

For conveners or anyone considering becoming a convener, we recommend participating in one of our Online Heart and Mind Communities. Experiencing at least Guides 1 & 2 as led by Donna Nicolson, will provide the comfort and skill to form and convene your own local Heart and Mind Community.

The cost to participate in a Heart and Mind Community is $44 per Guide per member. For the cost of a cup of coffee and a biscuit each time you gather, you are receiving three years of work by an international team of educators and spiritual directors. In addition, the team continued to evaluate the Guides over their first two years of use.  From what we learned, the Guides were further edited and refined. They come to you now as a proven process.

In writing the Guides, our desire was to put in your hands, wherever you might live, an in-depth experience of spiritual formation and transformation. Those who have used the Guides report that this is exactly what happens. Your contribution keeps our lights on and the work moving forward. Thank you.

While we know that $44 per Guide per member is a steal for work of this quality, our desire is to put these Guides in everyone’s hand who wishes to do this work. If $44 per Guide is not within your means, please make your best contribution. And if you are a person of means, consider a contribution more than $44.
