The Monastic Tradition Vol 1

Laurence Freeman, OSB
Welcome address by Abbot Primate Notker Wolf OSB

Fr. Laurence Freeman discusses the monastic tradition of meditation which John Main OSB recovered for modern people yearning for the spiritual depth. The monk's goal was to "pray without ceasing." Monastic prayer had two aspects: the opus dei or vocal prayer and oratio pura or imageless prayer. Meditation integrates out two centres of intelligence, the head and the heart, and so enable continuous prayer where work and prayer are not separate but flow one into the other.  

Fr Laurence is a Benedictine monk of the Olivetan Congregation and director of The World Community for Christian Meditation.
