The perfect companion for all those who feel drawn to contemplative prayer and meditation, but who need help and guidance going about it.
In the first of three sections, James Roose-Evans explores his own personal journey, sharing the fascinating details of his life as a leading theater director, and drawing parallels between Christian ritual and the role of ritual in the theater. He goes on to explain the practical aspects of meditation – such as the significance of posture and breathing, the use of the mantra, and the importance of regular practice. Finally, he provides a monthly guide, taking the reader day-by-day through suggested meditations and reflections which encourage the practice of silent, wordless prayer.
Combining practical help with imaginative insights, Inner Journey, Outer Journey will provide guidance and inspiration for all those seeking a still center amidst the pressures of work and daily life.
“A very precious and very practical book – it deserves to be loved and revisited often.” Rowan Williams
