You are invited to join one of the world’s leading experts on Christian contemplation and meditation. Deepen your spirituality through meditative prayer with Fr. Donald Goergen, winner of the Yves Congar Award for Theological Excellence.
Many Christians are familiar with the practice of meditation in Eastern spiritual traditions. But did you know that Western mysticism also has a rich meditative tradition? From the time of the desert fathers and mothers to the present day, a long line of mystics have provided us with inspiring, prayerful practices.
In this illuminating audio course, you will learn powerful lessons about meditative prayer - or the silencing of the mind. Under the guidance of Fr. Donald Goergen, you will explore such topics as silence, group meditation, and the difference between meditation and contemplation. Along the way, you will be inspired by the teachings of the Philokalia, John Cassian, St. Augustine, St. Dominic, Thomas Aquinas, Meister Eckhart, Teresa of Ávila, John of the Cross, Thérèse of Lisieux, and many others.
In these 12 powerful talks, you will engage in meditative and contemplative practices while appreciating the Christian mystical tradition that has nourished these practices throughout the centuries. As you learn from the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us, you will expand your horizons of prayer.
