What a great find for me!

I loved this book and the way the author unfolds the aspects of centering prayer. I have listened several times and pick up new insight every time. Great presentation of an ancient prayer.

Experientially Very Obvious Practical Benefits

After forty years of striving for the fruit of inner peace, inwardly- and outwardly-obvious peace are being very easily generated, easy to come by and persistently manifested. I warm myself by the Fire in the "Heart-h" of the Father, using this exceedingly-valuable resource every single evening.

Wise Guidance

David Frenette gives us a flowing session of contemplative prayer guidance in a few hours. I practiced Centering for 20 years or more before incorporating these practical tips into my own Centering. Contemplation or Centering exist as discipline or practice not as a body of knowledge one learns and simply enjoys. Most listeners will listen to these tips, apply some, listen again refine and supplement a personal practice, and repeat as needed.

Deep and deeper

Really, really good.Gentle voice, true to Thomas Keating's approach, an experienced and nuanced meditator, teacher, pray-er, such depth of truth that feels Spirit-inspired.Practical, it takes you into what you so want to know, and then realise you don't need anything, all is Gift, you are already there.

A very special audio book

If you are looking for a meditation based on Christian tradition this is for you. Contemplation is a prayer without words. It is about letting God to guide us and let it be in our life. This book will give you a lot of peace in you mind.
