The Secret to Divine Consolation by Meister Eckhart

A reading from the great fourteenth century mystic Meister Eckhart from his work “The Divine Consolation” expressing timeless and universal wisdom for bringing the soul into union with the Holy. In this high and paradoxical teaching, we find the essence of mystical detachment. Yet that transcendence and emptying of self is only to be filled with the sacred love of God which enables unconditional love of others.

Essence Body Types as Tools for Self-Awareness

Note: Go to 10 minutes into the program to view the questions and answers, along with additional teaching.
Ted Nottingham will take questions on the little known Essence Body Types Information which are the original Enneagram oral teachings brought to the West by G.I. Gurdjieff and expounded on by Rodney Collin and Maurice Nicoll. ┬áThis is an entirely different Teaching from the popularized Enneagram of personality types and offers more powerful, direct revelation of one’s inherent behavior for the purpose of understanding oneself and others, and ultimately discovering our True Self.

The Theotokos: Mother of God

This series of heavenly chanted prayers to the Mother of God and the Mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is part of the ancient Morning Prayers. Before the Mercy of the God-Bearer, the faithful soul prays for forgiveness and protection for the coming day. The Theotokos (Mother of God) is truly the “Joy of All Who Sorrow.”


This Thrice-Holy Hymn known as the Trisagion dates from 740 AD when a young boy was taken up to Heaven during a massive earthquake in Constantinople where he experienced the thunderin of this Hymn of the Angels in the Presence of the Uncreated. It is sung everytime Orthodox Christians gather to worship. This is the Slavonic rendition of ancient times but can be understood in the depths of every soul.
