From the Back Cover:

Sacred Rhythms explores the practices that spiritual seekers and growing disciples have used throughout history to grow closer to God. Far from a heavy-handed, rigid approach to the spiritual life, Sacred Rhythms draws on the imagery of the natural rhythms of the created order. The ebb and flow of the ocean waves and tides and the changing of the seasons provide predictable rhythm and regularity to the created order, yet they are also full of infinite variety and beauty. The rhythm of a good beat makes music and dancing one of the most delightful and spontaneous experiences we enjoy, yet we must learn to master the basic notes and movements if we wish to fully enter in. In a similar way, the disciplines of the spiritual life are the basic components of the rhythm of intimacy that feeds and nourishes the soul, keeping us open and available to God's surprising initiative in our lives. When we are in touch with our deepest longings, we are compelled to seek out ways of living---rhythms of daily life---that match those desires. In this six session DVD curriculum, Ruth Haley Barton provides practical guidance for individuals and groups that want to enter into the central disciplines of the Christian faith in a way that links them to the most consistent and compelling desires of the human soul. Each session offers video teaching as well as specific practices that allow you to experience each discipline and incorporate it into your everyday life. * Session 1, Longing for More covers the topic of our desire and the practice of prayer. * Session 2, Creating Space for God looks at the practice of solitude and silence. * Session 3, Engaging the Scriptures explores the ancient practice of lectio divina as a means of engaging the Scriptures. * Session 4, Flesh and Blood Spirituality will help you recognize the importance of the body and its affect upon our spiritual health and vitality. * Session 5, Bringing My Whole Self to God introduces the practice of self-examination and shows you how to begin a daily review of your life. * Session 6, A Rule of Life helps you to develop a plan for cultivating the rhythms and habits necessary for ongoing spiritual transformation in the days, weeks, months, and years of our lives. Only God can bring true and lasting transformation to our lives. But there are practices that we can develop and maintain in our lives that keep us open and available to the power of God. Sacred Rhythms is an invitation to recognize your deep spiritual hunger and develop a consistent way of life that opens you to the presence of God.
