Introducing James Finley

On this introductory episode, Kirsten Oates introduces us to James Finley, our guide for this podcast. Together they explore the journey of Jim’s life and how turning to the mystics and leaning into their experiences can become a gateway to hope, healing and oneness.

Jim offers trustworthy guidance for the spiritual journey through this website, online courses, and through the Center for Action and Contemplation where he serves as a core faculty member with Cynthia Bourgeault and Richard Rohr. Jim is the author of several books, including Merton’s Palace of Nowhere, The Contemplative Heart, and Christian Meditation.
