"Putting on the mind of Christ"

The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Bourgeault is an author, lecturer, hermit, and scholar. She is also a retreat and conference leader, teacher of prayer, writer on the spiritual life, and Episcopal priest.

Passionately committed to the recovery of the Christian contemplative path, she has worked closely with Father Thomas Keating and Father Bruno Barnhart and other Christian contemplative masters. She has studied Sufism, the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff, and the inner traditions of Christianity.

And when she isn't teaching Centering Prayer or giving lectures around the world, she spends half the year in the solitude of a Trappist hermitage on Eagle Island, Maine.

She is the author of Mystical Hope, The Wisdom Way of Knowing, Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, Chanting the Psalms, The Wisdom Way of Knowing, Love is Stronger than Death, and The Wisdom Jesus, plus many articles on the contemplative life.

This is the recording of her talk, Putting on the Mind of Christ, given in London on 20 May 2008.
