Learn Christianity's Meditation Tradition. Jesus lived in deep awareness of his oneness with God and would often spend whole nights in silent prayer. Is it possible for us, today, to walk this inward path? Since the time of the Desert Fathers in the third century, Christian mystics have practiced meditation as a way of opening to the direct presence of God in daily life. Legendary seekers such as Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa of Avila, and Meister Eckhart explored how meditation can lead us beyond the closed horizon of the ego to an interior and holy refuge that is always available to us. Now, with Christian Meditation, acclaimed author and teacher, James Finley, invites you to experience this all-transforming way of life, and the ever-deepening realization of oneness with Christ it leads us to. Beginning with an overview of the Christian contemplative tradition and its early roots, and complete with step-by-step instruction, Christian Meditation offers you a personal retreat experience to practice along with, at your own pace. In 12 complete sessions-over 7 hours of instruction with the beginner in mind, James Finley guides you along this path of awakening in order to glimpse the infinite union that holds the secret of who we really are. Meditation has the power to reveal to us the surprising nearness of God, Finley teaches. As you expand your meditation practice, in concert with your faith, you will find that these divine moments come more often, until you are finally awakened to your own deepest self, one with Christ, with James Finley's Christian Meditation.
