You will walk along this path of awakening, glimpsing the infinite union that holds the secret of who we really are. This state of awakened consciousness, known as the “Cloud of Unknowing,” is revered in both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions.

Meditation, as you will learn, has the power to reveal the surprising nearness of God. 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.

Enjoy this spiritually edifying practice today.

    Our prayer group has found it to be very helpful, and it is leading us to deeper levels of meditative prayer.

    I most recently have used James Finley’s Christian Meditation CD with our brothers in prison. Our prayer group has found it to be very helpful, and it is leading us to deeper levels of meditative prayer.
