Meditation & The New Creation in Christ


These talks are drawn from the John Main Seminar 1991 led by Bede Griffiths. Referring to the search for God, he says people today are looking beyond doctrine and ritual for direct experience. Christian Meditation opens a way to this experience, to a passing beyond the ego and to an openness to our capacity for God – to a new creation in Christ. This healing and integration, he says, can lead to self-transcendence, to love, and to new forms of community offering a new vision for the future of the world family of religions. The talks on these CDs can be used as preparation for meditation. Each talk ends with a chant because chants, Fr Bede says, “link us with the past of humanity”.
