In this very first Episode of Contemplating Now, Cassidy Hall interviews previous guest of Encountering Silence, Therese Taylor-Stinson in a conversation titled, "Everybody Can Be A Mystic."
“I think everybody can be a mystic… Mystic means you’re living with a certain amount of uncertainty.”
Therese Taylor-Stinson
Therese is the co-editor of "Embodied Spirits: Stories of Spiritual Directors of Color," and the editor of "Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around — Stories of Contemplation and Justice." She is an ordained deacon and elder in the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), a lay pastoral caregiver, and a graduate of and an associate faculty member of the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation, where she previously served as a member of the board.
She is the founder of the Spiritual Directors of Color Network, an international, ecumenical/interfaith association of persons of color with a ministry of spiritual accompaniment. A native of Washington DC, she now lives in Maryland. Her ministry, like her books, explores the intersection of contemplative spirituality and the ongoing struggle for social justice and the dismantling of racism.
“We can all be getting in some trouble if we aren’t going along with the status quo.”
Therese Taylor-Stinson
