Teilhard: A Mystical Survivor!
Keywords:Teilhard, new cosmology, evolution, mysticism, spirituality
AbstractTeilhard de Chardin was a seminal figure of twentieth century spirituality. His Christ-centred evolutionary vision inspired new strands like that of Creation-Spirituality and the New Cosmology. While cherished by scholars for his scientific-theological synthesis, his enduring impact belongs to a wider spiritual landscape. He has helped to inspire a new wave of mysticism, celebrating the integration of creation and spirituality, a synthesis that resonates strongly with spiritual seekers of our time.
