Practitioners of Centering Prayer are known for the great enthusiasm they bring to the practice of this ancient discipline. Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening is a complete guidebook for all who wish to know the practice of Centering Prayer. Cynthia Bourgeault goes further than offering an introduction, however. She examines how the practice is related to the classic tradition of Christian contemplation, looks at the distinct nuances of its method, and explores its revolutionary potential to transform Christian life. The book encourages dialogue between Centering Prayer enthusiasts and those classic institutions of Christian nurture-churches, seminaries, and schools of theology-that have yet to accept real ownership of the practice and its potential.
It is amazing how confirming, clarifying, and encouraging Cynthia Bourgeault's teaching is. Probably the best on practical prayer I have ever read. -- Richard Rohr O.F.M., author of Everything Belongs This book will be inspiring, clear, and helpful to those who look well into it. -- Philip C. Fischer Review For Religious Every page of this book contains profound but accessible spiritual teaching and wisdom for living. The Anglican Journal Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening is a superb book, a wonderfully accessible introduction to Centering Prayer and the role it can play in your own 'salvation unto eternity.' Highly recommended for all who are on a spiritual path of any sort. -- Ken Wilber, author of The Eye of Spirit Bourgeault's prophetic voice points the way to restore harmony, dignity, and depth to our lived Christian community. The Anglican Journal Cynthia Bourgeault's book is a must-read... Her simple and clear explanations of the contemplative process so apparently based in her own experience re-ignited my own yearning to live a deeply God-centered life and renewed my commitment to the practice. -- Anne Simpkinson, co-author of Soul Work: A Field Guide for Spiritual Seekers
