In his latest book, First Sight: The Experience of Faith, Father Laurence Freeman believes that the contemplative life is open to everyone. A review of his work says that, “it can be achieved outside the walls of the monastery. Indeed contemplation and meditation will transform our lives and thus our communities. Freeman goes out to touch the hearts and minds of people involved in education, business and finance, mental health, the environment, inter-religious dialogue, collaboration, and citizenship.” And also, “to any who think they can reach God by running faster,” Freeman’s three powerful events with Wisdom Ways awakened our authentic ability to survive and aided us in renewing and flourishing as spiritual beings. The task is challenging, but the discipline invites a life-changing transformation.
