Going Inside

Learning to Teach Centering Prayer to Prisoners

Ray Leonardini

166 pp.  
5" x 8"

Lantern Books


Published:  October 2016


In Going Inside (the companion volume to his Finding God Within) Ray Leonardini offers a practical manual for all those who are engaged, or are thinking of becoming engaged, with contemplative (or centering) prayer in prison. With advice from his own experience as well as that of prisoners themselves, Going Inside is an essential tool to enable your centering prayer groups to be effective and transformative for everyone involved.

"I only wish I had this guidance and advice when I was a jail chaplain for fourteen years. You do not need to fly by the seat of your pants anymore! When you have access to a man as patient and experienced as Ray Leonardini, you would be wise to let him guide you—in one of the least supported and yet most needed ministries of Christianity."

Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation; author, Breathing under Water
