Intimacy with God

An Introduction to Centering Prayer
$19.95
Product Description
A poetic and accessible introduction to the method of Centering Prayer, this guide explains its origins, theological basis, and psychology by drawing on the writings of important Catholic figures, such as St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross, and significant texts, such as "The Cloud of Unknowing."

Describing the theological basis for the Centering Prayer while staying rooted in the heart of a practice that is very personal and intimate, the study explores how harmful attitudes and beliefs about God can distort a positive relationship with the divine. With a careful balance of both Christian and Buddhist philosophy, the volume also discusses the psychological barriers and levels of resistance that contemplatives must face and bolsters seekers with supportive practices like "Lectio Divina" (holy reading) and praying the rosary.

Updated to include a new foreword, this revised edition of a much loved classic is sure to inspire a deeply intimate experience with God.
