About Gregory Ryan

GREGORY RYAN learned to meditate from John Main, whose teaching he has followed and shared since 1978. In 1981 he was received as an oblate of the Benedictine community by John Main. The same year, Gregory started a weekly meditation group, which he has led since. He also started the first website for The World Community for Christian Meditation.

Gregory’s published works include Our Hearts Burned within Us: Reading the New Testament with John Main, and children’s book My Happy Heart: Prayer of the Heart, which comes packaged with an audio CD My Happy Heart Sings.
