    DescriptionPractitioners 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.

    Review quote
    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`
