John Main Christian Meditation - WCCM

By means of the mantra we leave behind all passing images

and learn to rest in the infinity of God himself.

- John Main O.S.B.

The purpose of this website has changed over the years. It was created by Donald Main, and while initially set up to support and publicize a new group in St. Dominic's Catholic Church in San Francisco, it soon expanded to include information for other groups in San Francisco. Then, when Donald moved from San Francisco to New York City, the site was updated to provide info. for the New York City groups. The last change to the site before its current form was to include information for the group Donald helped start in Mystic, CT. 

The site now simply offers Christian Meditation books, CDs, and other items for those of you looking for more information about this wonderful, quiet way of Christian prayer. You'll find Christian Meditation material by John Main O.S.B., Laurence Freeman O.S.B., and others in our shop.

"The essence of Christian Meditation is learning to stand back and to allow God to come into the forefront of your life, to take that step away from self-centeredness to God-centeredness. The result is that we find our own place in the world, our relationships in the right order - our relationships with one another, our relationship with creation, and our relationship with God."
-- John Main O.S.B.
