Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk and bestselling author of such beloved works as The Seven Storey Mountain and New Seeds of Contemplation. One of the 20th century’s great mystics, Merton was also a masterful teacher who delivered powerful conferences to the novice monks at the Abbey of Gethsemani. In these conferences, Merton’s thinking moved from cloistered monastic life to issues of social justice and interreligious understanding. A spiritual sage and guide for countless men and women, Merton struggled with complex questions about God’s existence and the role of organized religion.

Those who knew him also experienced his gifts as a homilist and teacher. These special, remastered recordings are part of his spoken word legacy. They are actual recordings of Thomas Merton. By agreement with The Thomas Merton Legacy Trust, Now You Know Media has the sole right to record, master, re-master, duplicate, market, and disseminate copies of “The Merton Recordings,” which are a selection of the archives housed in the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

    An incredible gift.

    Hearing the teaching of Thomas Merton in his own voice is an incredible gift. From the content of his talks, the handling of questions to his sense of humor, it is as if you are in the classroom with this spiritual master. The recorded Merton brings his thought to life in a powerful way.

    Precious material

    Having recently read Merton’s last journals, I was particularly interested in these talks on prayer and monasticism done in 1967, the year prior to his death. Feel very blessed listening to these late-life reflections of this so-important spiritual master and seeker. Gleaned a number of points useful for sharing in my secular Carmelite community. Will share the set with friends when I’ve listened a few times. Precious material here.

    I enjoyed this program. I am a religious Sister whose ministry is spiritual direction and giving directed retreats. I feel prayer is my deepest vocation and I continue to learn and be so supported by the wisdom and inspiration of these CD’S.
