John Main

John Main (1926-1982), an English Benedictine monk, pioneered the practice of Christian meditation. His genius was to recover a way into the contemplative experience for ordinary people within the Christian tradition. Through books and retreats he promoted the practice of meditation as a way for modern people to develop a deeper spiritual life.

Hailed by Bede Griffiths as the "most important spiritual guide in the church today," his work inspired the foundation of World Community for Christian Meditation and a network of hundreds of meditation groups around the world.

Twelve Talks for Meditators

John Main

These series of short talks now available in CD format. These short talks serve as introductory talks to a meditation period. Fr. John's Introduction on Track 1 explains how they can be used to prepare for silence of meditation. The short talks average 5-6 min on 12 different tracks.

In the Beginning: Talks for Beginning Meditators

John Main

These talks are ideal for groups or individuals to use over a 12-week period of weekly meetings. Each talk, about twenty minutes, provides an excellent preparation for meditation, calming the mind and gently pointing the whole person toward the inner and outer silence of meditation
