What People are saying about this

Rev. Damien Thompson
�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)
