9780060750640: Christian Meditation: Experiencing the Presence of God

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.

Book Description HarperOne, 2005. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In this thoughtful and accessible book, well-known spiritual counselor and speaker James Finley presents the fundamentals of both understanding and practicing Christian meditation today. His meditation practice and the contemplative life that flows from it were influenced by his studies with Thomas Merton at the Abbey of Gethsemani. Through meditation, says Finley, practitioners can learn to be more awake, compassionate, Christlike human beings. Christian Meditation introduces an ancient practice to a contemporary audience. James Finley, a well-known spiritual counselor and speaker, presents the fundamentals of both understanding and practicing Christian meditation. A former monk and student of Thomas Merton, Finley teaches readers to expand (or begin) their meditation practices in concert with their faith and guides them to discover that divine moments of awakened consciousness can lead to a deeper connection with Christ. He explains how meditation can enrich our daily lives by connecting us not only with the present moment, but also with the eternal now that is beyond time. Finley provides simple, helpful instructions on the practicalities so essential to true meditation -- focusing one's attention, sitting, breathing, orienting one's eyes, walking, and maintaining a compassionate, forgiving attitude. Above all, he makes clear that the aim of meditation is to allow us to experience divine contemplation, the presence of God. Book jacket. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060750642
