A Seer Is Greater Than A Prophet Empowering Mormon Mystics

Mysticism pertains to the discourse beyond discourse. It is a style of attending to events, and an experiential aesthetic. In this session, we discuss a theology of mysticism in the context of the Restoration movement by examining the spiritual gift of seership. The Restoration’s centrally-defining text—The Book of Mormon—asserts seership as a gift second only to the power of God. We explore the history of seership in Western and Eastern civilizations, and hear from Mormon mystics who will share examples of their own personal visions.
