You don't have to be a monk or mystic to live a contemplative life. So what is a contemplative Christian? And does one live in the mystical dimensions of life even in the modern world? Dr. James Finley offers 4 profound videos on tapping into the Love of the universe that allows us to be completely vulnerable, to find the beauty in every small aspect of the world, and living in inner awareness.
