Bridges to Contemplative Living

BECOME A CONTEMPLATIVE with Thomas Merton

Bridges to Contemplative Living with Thomas Merton is a small group experience that invites people into contemplative dialogue. The course is based on a series of booklets edited by Jonathan Montaldo and Robert G. Toth of the Merton Institute for Contemplative Living. The texts explore aspects of contemplation and the meaning of contemplative living. Each week a quote from Thomas Merton is read and discussed. Short quotes from other wisdom figures of both Christian and non-Christian disciplines are also studied.

This series gently leads participants on a journey toward personal spiritual transformation and a more contemplative and peace-filled life. Each eight-session booklet offers an introduction to Merton and contemplative living through prayers, readings from Merton and other spiritual masters, and questions for small group dialogue.
