About this Course
Contemplative spirituality is Christianitys best-kept secret. Monks, nuns and mystics have engaged in silent prayer and meditation for centuries, and their wisdom teachings have been preserved in contemplative writings like The Cloud of Unknowing or The Way of a Pilgrim. In this series of daily meditations, Carl draws on the wisdom of the mystics and relates it to the challenges of contemporary life. Let the Christian mystics guide you to a profound daily spiritual practice grounded in silence, meditation, and the unconditional love of God. less
