The Hunger for Depth and Meaning

John Main

The Hunger for Depth and Meaning corresponds with John Main's original spoken word on a set of ten CDs under the same title. His very contemporary Christian contemplative teaching addresses the spiritual anguish of people in all walks of life struggling to make sense of their lives. The talks retain the authority, simplicity and humor with which Jr. John taught. They are arranged thematically to give a clear and comprehensive overview of Fr John's teaching on prayer.

This book offers inspiration and encouragement for the practice of meditation. It can be read through systematically for a broad but deep understanding of the teaching on meditation. Or it can be read selectively to prepare for or to end times of meditation. The book can also be used in conjunction with the CD's at meditation group meetings or for private study.

"I am amazed still, as I write, at the power and clarity of what he taught. How extraordinarily simple and luminous. How painfully and joyfully direct. How unchanged by the passage of a generation is the freshness and urgency of his message," Laurence Freeman OSB

Book, 204pgs. soft cover

Silence and Stillness in Every Season

John Main

Many people across the world have found their spiritual lives enriched by the daily practice of Christian Meditation, a contemplative way of silent prayer taught by Benedictine monk John Main (1926-1982). It is a tradition grounded in Biblical wisdom, the early Christian desert monks, and the spiritual classic The Cloud of Unknowing. This collection of John Main’s teaching from his talks and books draws the essence of his teachings into one volume. Paul Harris has devotedly selected the essential extracts from each of John Main’s works and arranged them into an attractive and practical daily readings format.

"Every morning and evening these daily readings offer gentle encouragement and wise inspiration," Laurence Freeman OSB, Benedictine monk.

The Essential Teaching

John Main

CD 1: An Introduction to Christian Meditation is a basic description of the why and how of meditation as well as a survey of the contemplative tradition in which this teaching is firmly rooted.

CD 2 Meditation: The Christian Experience explains the essential Christian theology of meditation in the language of the mystery of the Trinity, presenting it in terms of the experience of change, rather than as an abstract theory.

The Essential Teachings - This, the first set of John Main's recorded teaching on meditation has become a basic introduction to the tradition and its practice.
