The Heart of John Main's Essential Teachings

John Main

Since his death on December 30, 1982, John Main's teaching on Christian Meditation has spread around the world. Recognized as one of the twentieth century's major spiritual guides, his teachings on contemplative prayer has already transformed countless lives and his influence continues to grow.

The ten short talks included in this set are especially appropriate for newcomers to meditation. You can listen to these talks over a few days, each of the talks are approximately 20 minutes in length, however, they also can be used as you begin your meditation period. Each talk is a wonderful reminder of the way of meditation for newcomers or for those practicing for months or years.

Our thanks to Paul Harris who assisted in choosing these tapes from over 100 tapes recorded by Fr. John from 1977 to 1982.

This CD Set includes 3 CD's Introduction with Fr. John prayer before meditation, 10 talks each approx 16-20 minutes in length. The talks include topics such as What Meditation is All About, Why Should We Meditate, Learning to Listen, A Time for Silence, Purpose of Meditation and others.
