The Gift of Being

Preparing to Meditate

Laurence Freeman OSB


The process of meditation is the opening of the eye of the heart.  This is a deeper and more simple consciousness that allows us to know that we can love and be loved and that we are all "in love."

This set of CD's is second in a series of short talks given by Laurence Freeman OSB to meditators as a preparation for a meditation period.  In the tradition of John Main's talks to meditation groups, each of these talks can serve to prepare you for a period of meditation as well as to inspire your daily practice.  They are useful for both beginners and regular meditators who understand the need for preparation for deepening insight into the journey of meditation.
