Contemplative Prayer
Meditation in the Christian Tradition

A contemplative prayer practice session with a friend and student of Thomas Merton.

Starting at: $3.99



Since the time of the Desert Fathers in the third century, Christian mystics have practiced meditation as a way of opening to the presence of God in daily life. James Finley, a friend of Thomas Merton and his fellow monk for six years at the Abbey of Gethsemani, introduces us to this direct, mystical form of prayer, an enduring path of communion with the divine that reflects the spirit of Christ's own desert sojourns.
