Becoming Who You Already Are helps readers learn to utilize their own life experiences as the primary tool for spiritual growth. It points us in the end to embrace our deep connections with all of creation through the God who made us. While the series uses Merton as a starting point, it seeks most of all to mine the spiritual depths of those who use it.
The Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton series invites users to personal spiritual transformation for the sake of a more just and peaceful world. Each eight-session booklet offers an introduction to Merton and contemplative living, prayers, readings from Merton and other spiritual writers, and questions for dialogue.
