Religion & SpiritualitySpiritualityChristianity

Turning to the Mystics is a podcast for people searching for something more meaningful, intimate and richly present in the divine gift of their lives. James Finley, clinical psychologist and Living School faculty, offers a modern take on the historical contemplative practices of Christian mystics like Teresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, John of the Cross among others. Leaning into their experiences can become a gateway to hope, healing and oneness. Together with Kirsten Oates from the Center for Action and Contemplation, they explore listener questions and examine their own paths as modern contemplatives in this beautiful and broken world.

  • Exceptional, illuminating, cherished. James Finley is a national treasure and I and many others are so grateful for his heart and willingness to share his insights and wisdom (from above he would say) with all of us.

  • Returning ti Intimacy

    I hadn’t realized till listening to James Findlay today how much I longed for that first communion connection to God when I was first saved. How did it become so perfunctory? I used to spend hours reading the Bible and praising God in psalms. Now, if I’m being honest, I generally show up with a list of concerns and requests. And then I wonder why God seems so silent! more

  • Wonderfully done contemplative podcast

    After experiencing a few of Jim’s mini-sermons via CAC, and also being drawn to mystical paths in the Christian lineage (and Lectio Divina), I found this podcast to be a wealth of inspiration. I have only been able to do John of the Cross in real-time but will go back to Theresa of Avila and look forward to more! Since I’ve always been inspired by Merton’s words it’s great to be guided by one who actually studied with him.
