In The Corner of Fourth and Nondual, a title inspired by Thomas Merton's moment of revelation 'at the Corner of Fourth and Walnut' in his celebrated essay 'A Member of the Human Race', Cynthia Bourgeault - internationally-renowned retreat leader, practitioner and teacher of Centering Prayer - describes the foundations of her theology: a cosmological seeing with the eye of the heart, and classic Benedictine daily rule informed and enlightened by wisdom from the Asian traditions. She explains the influence of the author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Teilhard de Chardin, Boehme, Barnhart, Keating and Gurdjieff, among others in a philosophy built on the cornerstones of the Incarnation and the Paschal Mystery, tied by the Trinity as a cosmogonic principle, the fundamental generative mechanism through which all things came into being.
