Gospel of Thomas

with Kimberly Beyer-Nelson
and Rev. Tom Thresher, Ph.D.

In 1945, an incredible manuscript was found among the writings of what is now called the Nag Hammadi library. Written in Coptic, the Gospel of Thomas contained the sayings of Yeshua, the man we know as Jesus.

Come and share a contemplative and experiential journey into the heart of the words and the hearts of humankind.

The class is co-taught by Rev. Tom Thresher and Kimberly Beyer-Nelson, MA in comparative religion.

Tom Thresher
Tom is currently the pastor of a nascent Integral Church in western Washington.

His recent book — Reverent Irreverence: Integral Church for the 21st Century…From Cradle to Christ Consciousness (Integral Publishers) — explores how churches can use their unique role in western culture to support the evolution of human consciousness.

Long a student of consciousness and spirituality, Tom’s exploration was inspired by eight years of intensive transformational work in a small group setting nearly 40 years ago.

Ironically, that experience led him into economics. After completing a Masters in Economics and a Doctorate in Education at Stanford University, Tom taught economics for a decade.

Following a personal crisis, he left college teaching and worked for 12 years as an artist/craftsman. A series of extraordinary events led him to seminary in 1998.

He is now an ordained minister and spiritual teacher in the emerging field of Integral Christianity.

Over the years he studied and worked with a Native American shaman, explored Zen and Yoga, and developed his own Westernized spiritual practices.

For the past nine years he has led groups exploring the interface of religion, spirituality and science. He continues to develop and lead workshops in Transformational Inquiry and Integral philosophy.
