Response to GliderGuider (Reply #12)

13. There is a greater interest now in contemplation in Christianity.

you are right ... there is no modern mystic sect within Christianity. They do fly solo, or within small groups or specific small churches.

most Christian mystics were Medieval or of the early Reformation, but modern Christians are open to many ideas, many completely outside the Christian tradition, or from much earlier ages in the Church.

I belonged to a Christian church that did three-day silent meditation retreats. I know of a local monastery where week-long silent retreats are offered. It is all about meditation/contemplation.
