The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See  -by Richard Rohr

Through the stories, meditations, and tested practices in this book, Rohr will help you: 

  • Awaken your desire for God
  • Free yourself from the fears that can cripple you
  • Connect to the joy already within you
  • Transform yourself and inspire others
  • See as the mystics see

For Christians seeking a way of thinking outside of strict dualities, this guide explores methods for letting go of division and living in the present. Drawn from the Gospels, Jesus, Paul, and the great Christian contemplatives, this examination reveals how many of the hidden truths of Christianity have been misunderstood or lost and how to read them with the eyes of the mystics rather than interpreting them through rational thought. Filled with sayings, stories, quotations, and appeals to the heart, specific methods for identifying dualistic thinking are presented with simple practices for stripping away ego and the fear of dwelling in the present.

The enlightenment you seek in other religions has been present in Christianity from the beginning. Richard Rohr, a globally recognized teacher, shows you what it means to be spiritually awake. Richard helps us recognize the forces that separate us from our deeper selves. Drawing from the Gospels and the greatest Christian contemplatives, he shows us what it means to be spiritually awake.
“The Naked Now is a deep breath of fresh air. Richard Rohr invites us, all of us, to slow down and to find God, or be found by God, in all the places we never thought to look.” — Jim Wallis, author of The Great Awakening
