The Heart of Creation: Meditation - A Way of Setting God Free in the World [9781853118487]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
We take it for granted that aspects of monastic life can sustain our daily lives in the world, but we owe this understanding to John Main, a Benedictine monk who pioneered the idea that the desert tradition of meditative or contemplative prayer, which had largely been forgotten in the West, was for all Christians. At his monastery in London, he started teaching this way of prayer to lay groups and a network of meditation groups came into being, quickly spreading throughout the world and renewing a sense of the Church as a fellowship rooted in prayer and contemplative action. Bestselling books soon grew out of his talks. This simple, practical guide to 'pure prayer' teaches that by ceasing to struggle to find words and images by which we all too easily try to control God, we give God freedom to be himself in our hearts and we begin to pray with 'the mind of Christ', as St Paul teaches. In a nervous world saturated with image and endless self-commentary, this is a nourishing, life-giving stream of hope and refreshment.
AUTHOR: JOHN MAIN became a Benedictine monk after diplomatic service in the Far East, and teaching law at Trinity College, Dublin. He founded an open Benedictine community in Montreal from which sprang the World Community for Christian Meditation, a worldwide spiritual family linked through the daily practice of meditation, operating in 114 countries and with 100,000 members worldwide. Laurence Freeman is a Benedictine monk who followed John Main osb as director of the World Community of Christian Meditation, a worldwide spiritual family united in the practice of daily prayer, with over 110,000 members in more than 100 countries.
