Mystics often write that they have immediate understanding of the Divine, even if they sometimes add that the content of their insight cannot possibly be explained. But if so, then for whom do they write? And how can their writings be interpreted from a philosophical perspective? The course will introduce the main mystical tradition that developed in Germany through two major mystical philosophers: Meister Eckhart (c.1260-1328) and Jacob Böhme (1575-1624). We will also explore biblical and philosophical sources of mysticism.

Fees and bursaries

Fees

Fees for weekend courses cover tuition, meals (except breakfast) and refreshments, including morning coffee and afternoon tea during teaching hours, and travel on excursions (but not entrance fees to properties visited). Accommodation can be booked for an additional fee and includes breakfast.

VAT does not apply to course fees and there is no service charge (gratuities to domestic staff are left to your discretion). It is sometimes possible to stay for extra nights or extra meals, or to invite guests to meals, at an additional cost and by prior arrangement with the Admissions team.

If you do not wish to pay in full at the time of booking, you may pay a 15% registration fee as a deposit by credit/debit card. The balance will automatically be taken two weeks before the start of the course. If you wish to pay by cheque, you will need to pay in full when the booking is made.

You may cancel a course booking at any time. After the 14 day cancellation period has expired, the standard ICE course cancellation policy will apply. Please view our refund and cancellation policy for further details.
