This is a bold, provocative and challenging study by someone who obviously has genuine experience as well as brilliant insight. This book is a real gift to the centering prayer movement, which is currently at a critical crossroad. I very much appreciate the author's exploration of the Cloud of Unknowing, which I have struggled with for years. More of that, please. I'd like for her to write a study of the whole book. I was not happy with the reader, whom I found detached from the material, a little smug, and too rushed for this deep material. I regret that Cynthia didn't elect to read it herself.

She reconnected me to the 12th Cent book The Cloud of Unknowing What a Gift

This book is quite difficult for me to understand.
Maybe I choose a book that is too advanced for my spiritual progress.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I have read most of the books by Father Thomas Keating on centering prayer and thoroughly enjoyed them. This book has confused me and left me feeling slightly intimidated. Too many big words and over complicated. If I ever hear the word 'nondual' again it will be too soon.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Definitely not for beginners. Perhaps when I have been practicing centering prayer for a longer time I may re visit it.
