The Heart of Creation


The Heart of Creation is the fifth of eight sets of John Main’s collected talks. The talks were given to meditation groups meeting each week at the Priory in Montreal. John Main is a teacher in the apophatic tradition of imageless, non-conceptual prayer. This form of pure prayer transcends all thought and imagination – not looking at God, but into God.
