The Rev. Shawn Garan is an Associate Pastor in the mainline, mainstream, United Church of Christ denomination, and he’s lately been studying a series of Gnostic texts with his community. Shawn comes on Talk Gnosis to talk about this exciting project, what he and his community have learned from the texts, how the mysticism and teachings of the Gnostics are relevant for those outside of the “Gnosticism” lable, some reflections on psychoanalysis and gnosis (he’s currently studying in the field) and more!
