Bernadette Roberts Talks Available
Good news, everyone!
The recorded "retreat" talks that Bernadette Roberts gave over her lifetime are now available to view at no cost. Bernadette Roberts was a modern-day Roman Catholic mystic who had some things to say.
You can find the website by clicking here.
Be forewarned that these are long talks, so you'd best set aside some time and split them up. I'd also recommend re-watching and taking notes.
Also, if you're skeptical because she identified herself as a more mainstream Christian, just wait it out. I think in the Essence of Christian Mysticism, it was around the 9 minute mark that I noted to myself, "Well, Father Sergio is going to enjoy this!"
I cannot recommend Bernadette's books highly enough, though I will say that the last one (The Real Christ) needed some severe editing. (There were a number of places in The Real Christ where Bernadette was simply repeating something she had said in a former chapter or even a few paragraphs before. This was unnecessary.)
Bernadette's another person among those who make the extreme claim that there's been a falling away of both the everyday Ego and the Deeper Self alike- revealing something even more profound beyond the Self- yet from the videos and by all accounts, she's still a very peppy person, as are most of the folks who make such claims!
It's something that's very reassuring, knowing that even in the Beyond of the Beyond, we don't become some kind of blank, bland automaton but are still vigorous and full of a distinct personality.
Finding out that these videos were available at no cost was just amazing and an amazing thing to be able to share with all of you.
As I said: long talks, so get some snacks and settle in because you're in for a ride.

Will watch them ! And yes indeed , I agree that contact with Our Inner Self / Christ within enhances our outer life . Meditation/Prayer is not meant to make us into zombies or negative nancies , quite the opposite . As Master Jesus the Christ reportedly said : " I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness " ( John 10:10 ) . Or as one of my favorite mystics of the XX century ( Maharishi Mahesh Yogui ) puts it : Right Meditation allows us to live 200 % of the value of life , 100 % of the outer value and 100 % of the inner . Thank you for this Steve . Blessings
