- This week on the show, we speak in the studio with Beverly Lanzetta, a theologian and spiritual teacher of new traditions of contemplative wisdom. Her career began almost forty years ago with her study of emerging religious paradigms, and their relationship to mystical theology, spiritual healing, energy medicine, and soul guidance in the world’s religions. She was a respected spiritual teacher before receiving her doctor of philosophy degree in theology and contemporary religious thought from Fordham University. Subsequently, she joined the faculties of Villanova University, Prescott College, and Grinnell College, offering courses that honored the rich heritage of the world’s mystical religions and new interfaith, interspiritual traditions emerging in our time.
Beverly also is the author of seven books on global spirituality and new monasticism, which have won praise for their wisdom, eloquence, and mystical insight, including Nine Jewels of Night: One Soul’s Journey into God; Path of the Heart: A Spiritual Guide To Divine Union; Radical Wisdom: A Feminist Mystical Theology; Emerging Heart: Global Spirituality and the Sacred; and The Other Side of Nothingness: Toward a Theology of Radical Openness Beverly recently formed Blue Sapphire Books to publish works that deepen the contemplative life and bring practical relevance to people exploring an integral, embodied spirituality.
Dedicated to a vision of theological openness and spiritual nonviolence, Beverly has worked and taught widely, founding a number of religious and monastic initiatives, including the Interfaith Theological Seminary and the Community of a New Monastic Way. She is actively involved in teaching, writing, sacred art, and the formation of (new) clergy, spiritual directors, and monks.
