Light Within

Meditation as pure prayer

Laurence Freeman teaches Christians from all traditions the simplest way of prayer - meditation. It is simple in that it requires no words, yet encountering God without the safety barrier of our own thoughts and ideas is to open ourselves to total transformation.  

This collection of talks on Christian meditation is full of practical advice and great spiritual insights in equal measure. It shows how discovering the presence of Christ within through meditative prayer can give shape and purpose to everything we do and are: our actions, emotions, fears, longings, failings and dreams. As John Main taught, the point of this kind of prayer is to allow God's presence to become not just a reality, but the reality of our lives.  

For those who have a head belief in meditation yet experience a block to practising it, Light Within offers encouragement to begin. For those on the way, it offers a deeper understanding of the journey and encouragement to persevere.
