Featuring two Classics of Contemplative Life (The Cloud of Unknowing and The Practice of the Presence of God and the Centering Prayer That Emerged from Them.
by Ph.D. Gay Hendricks (Author), James F. Twyman
Touching the Divinebrings to modern transformational readers the essence of the contemplative tradition. Emerging from the religious tradition of medieval Europe, this wisdom stresses a spiritual path based on simplicity, love, and personal experience of the divine. The path exemplified by the author ofThe Cloud of Unknowingand the monk known as Brother Lawrence is in sharp contrast to the dogma or pompous trappings often associated with organized religion.
Union with God is the passionate concern of practitioners of the contemplative life. Just as yogis of ancient India or Zen meditators of Japan discovered, the contemplatives of Europe found that this journey was a psychological as well as spiritual pursuit. The process involved stripping away all pretenses and personality manifestations to reveal the desired state of “naked Being.”
Touching the Divineshows us two remarkable models of the contemplative life, along with a method of prayer used for centuries by practitioners of the path. *Includes a meditative CD
