A 2-CD set by Rev. Glenda Meakin offered by Medio Media.
These four talks offer reflections on the ways Christian meditation enables us to listen to the daily news and respond to the needs of the world from a place of compassion, justice and love. Rather than being overwhelmed by the daily news, we learn, through the practice of meditation, to offer our talents and resources in humility and service. In meditation we discover the inner resources, the insight and the grace to do our small part in healing of the world.

New Edition - Born Contemplative - Introducing Children to Christian Meditation
Edited by - Penelope Sturrock
Madeleine Simon RSCJ had an intuitive understanding that children are 'born contemplative'. This book helps adults who care for children to share in their openness and longing for God in the silence, stillness and simplicity of Christian meditation. This new edition brings an experiential dimension to her enduring message. An invitation at the end of each chapter encourages the reader to respond not only to the content but, more importantly, to the experience of sharing the prayer of silence with children. The book will help practicing meditators who are looking for a way to introduce meditation to children. It will also encourage those who have not practiced meditation to begin in the interest of children. More Information & Order here.
The Pilgrimage DVD introduces the way of Christian meditation, and the work and vision of The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM). In four parts, and narrated by Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, the video describes the tradition of this ancient way of prayer, John Main's personal journey and re-presentation of the tradition. A teaching on how to meditate is followed by the sharing of experiences by meditators around the world who build the practice into their daily lives. An overview of WCCM describes the life of this global community that has been created by meditation, and which is vibrant in the weekly meditation groups that help newcomers to persevere on the inner journey. The "Meditatio" outreach expresses the aspiration of WCCM to express its contemplative life in work for peace, justice and compassion. "Pilgrimage" would be particularly useful for viewing at introductory workshops, group gatherings, and for sharing with people who are interested in the teaching and work of the Community.
