The Book of the Heart

Stages of Contemplation

Laurence Freeman, OSB

Silent Retreat at Monte Oliveto, Italy (June 2012)
Although we cannot measure the spiritual journey, there are certainly stages that we can identify and that help us to perserve and understand what is happening to us.  In these enlightening talks Laurence Freeman uses a series of medieval statues from Chartes Cathedral to illustrate this journey in a strikingly personal and contemporary way. The symbol of the book can be seen as the heart itself, opening in stages to a process of spiritual knowledge that leads to progressive transformation in love.  By linking these stages to the practice of meditation Father Laurence brings this ancient wisdom alive in our daily experience.
