Presented from an ecumenical perspective, Fr. Ciorra’s audio course emphasizes the deep theology behind these practices. Each method you learn will take time to develop. But the longer you are faithful to the practices you choose, the more the notion of “practice” will fall away and the more you will flourish.

Find the inner peace your heart yearns for today.
