No sugar coating our path to transformation.

Healing happens first within you. One cannot go out and be a source of healing to another unless one first looks within. Only then can our true self surface.

Richard Rohr and Thomas Keating help us name our demons. The only problem is as Christians we pretty much believe that we don't have any demons and that fact in itself is demonic.

The next demon is believing that you have conquered them and you are on your way to transformation. But, in reality one

Series of four lectures from each of the authors. OK, but not as good as I expected.

This book was not at all what I expected. It was more like a conference or a sermon. A few highlights to consider... reconnecting with being, immorality is a great gateway to holiness, we come to God not by doing it right but by doing it wrong, interrupt your psychological awareness by closing your eyes. There are several different people speaking on the perspective of healing the violence from within and on finding this through a closeness with God. One of my most favorite points made was that ...more

Loved it! I've been reading Rohr's books and listening to his lectures for years. His teachings, explanations, conclusions, etc... have utterly transformed my understanding of the God, Christianity, the purpose of our lives, and the twists and turns of the spiritual journey.

I read Fr. Keating's "Open Heart Open Mind" years ago and was blown away. I still revisit this book from time to time. Every time I do I come away with new gold nuggets. I had never heard Fr. Keating speak before. His teachi

I always enjoy listening to Father Rohr and Father Keating. Their teaching has always served me well, even though I'm not Roman Catholic. These messages are probably more timely today than when I first listened to them 10 years ago. ...more

“All great spirituality teaches about letting go of what you don’t need and who you are not. Then, when you can get little enough and naked enough and poor enough, you’ll find that the little place where you really are is ironically more than enough and is all that you need. At that place, you will have nothing to prove to anybody and nothing to protect.

That place is called freedom. It’s the freedom of the children of God. Such people can connect with everybody. They don’t feel the need to eliminate anybody . . .”
