Review of The Path of Centering Prayer

by Netanel Miles-Yépez from Spectrum:
A Journal of Renewal Spirituality

“Accessible Subtlety: A Review of The Path of
Centering Prayer by David Frenette” (6/18/2013)



The Path of Centering Prayer
named in

“The Best Spiritual Books of 2012″
and nicely reviewed by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat,
Spirituality & Practice: Resources for Spiritual Journeys


Excerpt from Brussat review: “Frenette’s enthusiasm for centering prayer, his use of illustrative material from his own life and mystical experiences, and his flair for creativity give this handbook a vibrancy that carries the reader along. We were especially taken with his comparisons of contemplation with dancing and with floating on water.”
