Andrew Harvey speaks with Contemplative Journal about Prayer

Please enjoy this free download of our exclusive conversation with teacher and poet Andrew Harvey on the topic of prayer. We discuss his new book, Light the Flame: 365 Days of Prayer, in which Harvey draws insights from around the world, across religions, and an array of sources––from Thomas Merton and Mother Theresa, to Nietzsche and Voltaire.

The legacy of Brother Wayne Teasdale continues to inspire.

Contemplative Journal is very fortunate to host two exclusive features relating to Wayne Teasdale: an intimate look at his life and teaching written by his protégé Rory McEntee, and a never before published article written by Brother Wayne himself. Although Wayne is no longer with us in physical form, these two powerful articles testify to the lasting presence of his visionary, loving, humble spirit.
