9781594712395: Writing Yourself Into the Book of Life (Bridges to Contemplative Living With Thomas Merton)

Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton gently leads participants on a journey toward spiritual transformation and a more contemplative and peace-filled life. Each eight-session booklet provides an introduction to Merton and contemplative living through prayers, readings from Merton and other spiritual masters, and questions for small group dialogue.

To live contemplatively is to embrace the realization that whatever we do and whomever we are, constitute a testimony of love that we are writing for loved ones and neighbors to read. Writing Yourself Into the Book of Lifehelps participants reflect together on their own book of life that they write in every day.

About the Author:

Jonathan Montaldo has served as the associate director of the Merton Institute for Contemplative Living, the director of the Thomas Merton Center, and as president of the International Thomas Merton Society. He has edited or coedited nine volumes of Merton's writing including The Intimate Merton, Dialogues with Silence, and A Year with Thomas Merton. He presents retreats internationally based on Merton's witness to contemplative living.

Robert G. Toth served as the executive director of the Merton Institute for Contemplative Living from 1998-2009. He currently serves the institute as director of special initiatives.

Review:

"The Bridges dialogues have brought many to a spiritual awakening. The particular technique helps participants touch a part of their lives that makes the experience unforgettable. These conversations have the capacity to make Merton's charism concrete." ----Rev. Damien Thompson, O.C.S.O., Former Abbot and Guest Master, Abbey of Gethsemani
