The first two CDs in this 6-CD set outline the main themes of Cynthia's teaching. She helps us find a radical new way of understanding and experiencing the wisdom of Jesus.
The other 4 talks contain a fuller explanation of how modern theology and science are confirming the truth of much of the contemplative tradition in Christianity, and in other faith traditions and prayer practices.
The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault is an author, lecturer, hermit, and scholar. She is also a retreat and conference leader, teacher of prayer, writer on the spiritual life, and Episcopal priest.
Passionately committed to the recovery of the Christian contemplative path, she has worked closely with Father Thomas Keating and Father Bruno Barnhart and other Christian contemplative masters. She has studied Sufism, the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff, and the inner traditions of Christianity.
This is a live recording of one of Cynthia's visits to the UK.
