The Contemplative Journey

The Contemplative Path

The contemplative path is both ascent and descent. It is a movement of love in our inmost self allowing us to grow in awareness of our inner egoic tendencies that keep us from manifesting divine love in the world. We usually come to a place of accepting this process after what Franciscan author Richard Rohr calls necessary suffering.

Contemplative Practices

Our focus is on contemplative practices for the individual, but the ultimate hope is that this transformation radiates outward into all facets of life to help us open to the greatest extent possible. Here are some of the many available spiritual practices that Christian contemplatives, mystics, and monastics have drawn on over the centuries.
