“Christianity has a powerful and rich tradition of nondual seeing which is often missed both by Christians and non-Christians largely because the language in which this experience is described is typically affective and personal. Centering Prayer is a powerful way to move through that language barrier into the direct experience of the Christian nondual realm. In this webcast I’ll show how.” —Cynthia Bourgeault
If you’re often confused by what is meant by “non-dual,” especially in the Christian tradition, you’re not alone! Join Cynthia for a conversation on her new book, The Heart of Centering Prayer: Non-dual Christianity in Theory and Practice. At a time of growing fear and polarization, we desperately need a new way of thinking and being in our world. In this talk, Cynthia will share how leading research on the neuroscience of meditation sheds new light on how Centering Prayer can pattern non-dual, heart-centered awareness. Cynthia’s ground-breaking approach helps shift our common understanding of Christianity’s well-hidden non-dual path away from graced experiences, into a dynamic inner attunement we can live from.
