My guest is Revd. Dr. Nicholas Buxton. Nicholas is a priest in the Church of England and runs a meditation centre in Newcastle. We discuss christian contemplative practice, the buddhist notion of emptiness and the personal and impersonal nature of the God.
He is the author of several books including: Tantalus and the Pelican: Exploring Monastic Spirituality Today, The Wilderness Within: Meditation and Modern Life. He has a PhD in Buddhist philosophy from Cambridge. Check out Nicholas’ meditation centre in Newcastle, Just Meditation.
Check out Nicholas’ Wise Studies course on the contemplative practices of the early desert fathers, the beginnings of the monastic christian tradition.
