Enjoy my conversation with Jason over at The Construction Monk Podcast.
We join Richard Lewis in discussing chapters 3 & 4 of his book “Sitting With God: A Journey to Your True Self Through Centering Prayer“.
I highly recommend this Centering Prayer course. I have listened to it multiple times and keep going back to it. It will help those new to Centering Prayer and those who wish to go deeper in their existing practice.
Prayer as a Path to Deepen Your Relationship with God
- Define the history and nature of Centering prayer with roots in the Contemplative Christian tradition through online video, audio and written presentations.
- Practice the formal method of Centering Prayer utilizing online practice sessions, inspirational poetry, and music.
- Utilize, reflect upon, and answer online questions pertaining to the relevance of Centering Prayer as it relates to one’s own life.
- Discuss and outline the psychology of Centering Prayer, including the “seven moments” of Centering Prayer along with the four levels of awareness.
I have listened to this multiple times. It has helped me with my Centering Prayer practice and provided a new and much needed angle on Jesus.
ENCOUNTERING THE WISDOM JESUS by Cynthia Bourgeault
The early Christians, teaches the Reverend Cynthia Bourgeault, were afire with the spirit of Jesus, inspired fully by his teaching of a total transformation of consciousness. How do we reclaim that fire today?
On Encountering the Wisdom Jesus, this brilliant author and dynamic Episcopalian priest presents her first full-length audio course about rediscovering the Master of Wisdom. Twelve immersive sessions cover: the parables as wisdom tools; Jesus’s teachings about kenosis (or self-emptying: a path as radical today as it was 2,000 years ago); Jesus as tantric master; Centering Prayer, an approach to meditation as Jesus lived it, and much more.
