    "Outstanding! No violence needed to appreciate this"

    Dont' t let the word "violence" put you off from listening to this. I have had little to no violence in my life, so avoided this book thinking it wouldn't be of interest. After having listened to most of what these two men have on audible, I finally decided to try this one. Wow, it is truly the very best of both of them, and having the two together in one event and referring to each other is very powerful. I loved this book, and if you enjoy either of these two people and their ideas, you will gain much from their insights here, even if you've never had a moment of violence in your life.

    "Christian Spirituality for Adults"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the most mature Christian retreats I've ever listened to. It moves well beyond the Christian spirituality of children. It dives directly into the reality of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, revealing our own identity [created] in the image and likeness of God. Thomas Keating and Richard Rohr point out that the Christian journey of spirituality does not lift us out of the suffering and struggle of life, but actually leads us into them, as we follow our Divine crusifed master Jesus. Rather than escaping our humanity, we are called to embrace it fully, as Jesus did. Not the false humanity that our world teaches us, but our true humanity as God's beloved children created in the divine image. Being truly human like Jesus leads us into many redemptive struggles to let go of our false images of our selves and others. Entering the Kingdom of God is a process of waking up to the great reality of all creation originating from Love, is presently being sustained by Love, and substatially One in being with Love, the Triune God and the source of all being.By allowing Jesus to awaken us and guide us into the reality of this divine union, we become our true selves, true human beings. Contempletive prayer is our heart's consent to participate in union with God. When we choose to accept and actively consent to our union with God, our hearts and minds become united with the love of God for all humanity and creation. Consequently, we recognize that loving non-violent direct action that seeks to heal victims and perpetrators equally is participation in the divine life, crusifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus. In short, our healing, happiness, peace and joy are only found through union with Divine Love, the essence of all being.

    "My 2 favorite theologians in 1 talk!"

    This set of talks was so rich, I often sat in wonder after a listen. Keen insights, new ways of thinking and some good humor. An enjoyable and inspiring listen!

    "Good Stuff"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Healing Our Violence Through the Journey of Centering Prayer?

    Really enjoyed the concept of demons and the parrallel to the pain body


    Have you listened to any of Richard Rohr and Thomas Keating ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First by Thomas Keating. I have enjoyed the few Richard Rohr recordings that I have


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Its not practical for me to listen to a long book all in one sitting. Also, i think you need to reflect on the content to get the most out of it.

    "Little new to learn"

    OK, the speakers are giants, the material is solid. At the same time, for any seasoned practitioner of Christian prayer, meditation, Krishna consciousness, yoga or Sufism - there is precious little new to learn here. I like other presentations from Fr. Richard Rohr much much more.
