The Tradition

Meditation is known as the prayer of the heart in the Christian tradition. This way of silent, imageless prayer, first recorded by the Desert Mothers and Fathers in the 4th century and is practiced right up to the present time. Many mystics through the ages invite us to participate in this contemplative tradition. The World Community for Christian Meditation is part of this living tradition.

These resources will help you to explore the historical context, the lives of the mystics and to inspire your daily practice.
