Thomas Merton’s Path to the Palace of Nowhere

First presented at a series of popular retreats, this full audio program takes a participatory approach to Merton's most useful teachings, helping us to discover our true self...to disappear into God; to be submerged into his peace; to be lost in the secret of his face, as Merton said, through daily practices including contemplation, prayer, and faith. In the end we find ourselves in what the Taoist sage Chuang Tzu called the Palace of Nowhere, where all the many things are one. There is an Eastern teaching called transmission of mind, in which the enlightened mind embodied in the master is manifest in the student's awakening. It is in this spirit that James Finley invites us to follow Thomas Merton's Path to the Palace of Nowhere.

Deserves a slow, attentive listen
Thomas Merton was my entrance into Christianity several decades ago. However, the denomination to which I belonged was nervous about Catholicism, so I set him aside. A number of unexpected spiritual twists and turns connected me with James Finley's work and reconnected me with Merton. So this audiobook has been a delight to me because it radiates both Finley and Merton. I listened slowly, often repeating sections, making notes, sitting with the ideas, at times reduced to silence or tears. I enjoyed the quiet cadence of Finley's delivery. The book deeply moved me.

Deep. Greatly valuable on the path.
The narrator is a contemplative - his voice alone gets you there. The book is well-crafted, profound, and ... sparkling!
