Overview


    Touching the Divine brings to modern transformational readers the essence of the contemplative tradition. Emerging from the religious tradition of medieval Europe, this wisdom stresses a spiritual path based on simplicity, love, and personal experience of the divine. The path exemplified by the author of The Cloud of Unknowing and the monk known as Brother Lawrence is in sharp contrast to the dogma or pompous trappings often associated with organized religion.
    Union with God is the passionate concern of practitioners of the contemplative life. Just as yogis of ancient India or Zen meditators of Japan discovered, the contemplatives of Europe found that this journey was a psychological as well as spiritual pursuit. The process involved stripping away all pretenses and personality manifestations to reveal the desired state of “naked Being.” 
    Touching the Divine
shows us two remarkable models of the contemplative life, along with a method of prayer used for centuries by practitioners of the path.
