Date: August 2018
Duration: 4 hours 47 minutes
A blend of timeless Christian wisdom and modern psychology, this one-of-a-kind course will transform your daily life.
For two millennia, the Christian tradition has developed tried-and-true methods for finding peace and dwelling in the presence of God. These time-honored practices have helped countless men and women lead more meaningful lives. But wielding the spiritual tools forged by our spiritual ancestors can be difficult amid the bustle of modern life.
In Spiritual Flourishing: Christianity's Great Spiritual Practices, Fr. Anthony Ciorra distills the wisdom of these practices into 12 life-changing lectures. An award-winning teacher of spirituality, Fr. Ciorra gives you a spiritual GPS for navigating the path to the divine.
With his engaging teaching and sage advice, you will cultivate a range of practices:
- Cultivating silence
- Practicing gratitude
- Sharpening your senses through fasting
- Focusing your attention through contemplation
- Praying with sacred images
- Keeping a journal of your daily life so that you can begin to trace God's hand
Presented from an ecumenical perspective, Fr. Ciorra's audio course emphasizes the deep theology behind these practices. Each method you learn will take time to develop. But the longer you are faithful to the practices you choose, the more the notion of "practice" will fall away and the more you will flourish.
Find the inner peace your heart yearns for today.
