Presentation "Henri Nouwen and our Common Union of Hearts"

Henri Nouwen’s spirituality is heart-centered for he believed that true communion takes place in the very depths of our hearts where God dwells and where we dwell in God. This presentation focuses on the three heart dynamics involved in our common union with God: solitude, identity, and presence---requiring our cultivation of an intimate, centered, and attentive heart respectively---all of which are interrelated and must be integrated in our deepening experience of God.
